Thanksgiving Text Messages To Send To Everyone You’re Grateful For

The perfect words to accompany a photo of your holiday meal, or the people you’re sharing it with.

There’s something magical about Thanksgiving morning. Maybe it’s watching the parade in PJs, or the much-anticipated all-day eating marathon your family is about to undertake, but Turkey day can put you in a mood where you just love, well, everyone. If you’re looking to share the lovefest, you may want to send Thanksgiving text messages to friends and fam both near and far. When you don’t know what to say, but want to reach out, these words can guide you — and quickly get you back to stuffing that bird.

Why would you send Thanksgiving text messages, anyway? Lots of reasons. If, in the flurry of pre-holiday school activities, you forgot to mail a physical card to your parents, a text can (sort of) do the trick. When your BFF is busy getting her own Thanksgiving prep underway, a quick message lets them know you’re thinking of them without the commitment of a phone call. You might want to let your partner know how much you appreciate them, especially if they have to be at work for part (or all) of the holiday. In short, Thanksgiving text messages are a short and sweet way of letting someone you know and love know that you’re thinking of them. (And it can also remind them to bring some sides or a dessert, too.)

Whether they’re on their way or a thousand miles away, send some Thanksgiving text messages. You’ll be glad you did — and they’ll feel grateful, too.
