Gifs that Sum up Thanksgiving

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Sewanee chapter.

Like most holidays, Thanksgiving comes with a huge variety of emotions. The rollercoaster of feelings never ends, no matter how much you want it to. From family gatherings to food comas, the Thanksgiving feel can only be summed up in one way: gifs.


When you first see your family.

When you finally see your dog.

When you finally get to see your friends from home again.

When your parents yell at you for the first time since being back.

When you’ve been yelled at too many times and you’re ready to be back at school.

When dinner is finally ready.

When ~those~ family members say something bigoted at dinner.

When it’s time for dessert.

When you need to eat as much home-cooked food as possible before you have to go back to food from the dining hall.

When you’ve eaten too much but you just can’t stop.

When the food coma hits.

When you get to sleep in your own bed again.

When it’s time to leave your family again.

When this feeling doesn’t have a name but it’s still oh so relatable.


Happy eating!
