11 Instagram Caption Ideas When Santa Claus Finally Comes To Town

For someone who only visits people once a year, Santa Claus sure knows how to stir up a buzz. It is basically the highlight of every kid's Christmas, a thing that parents know all too well. This year, why not document their excitement with a few photos and Instagram captions about Santa Claus visiting? Together, this combination creates instant memories that can be remembered for years to come. To top it off, friends and family who live far away will adore taking a peek into your own version of the North Pole.

You also can't deny that kids make Christmas better. Their enthusiasm is so contagious, that you might even find yourself being just as stoked, as convinced you were that you wouldn't be. Also, can we just talk about tiny elf outfits and Santa Claus hats? It's all just so cute, and come Christmas season, you have the perfect excuse to dress up little ones, and maybe even yourself, in gram-worthy holiday outfits.

Come Christmas morning, don't forget to snag a few pictures. It may be tricky to remember to capture the excitement in the midst all the holiday chaos, but it will be worth it to have a sweet photo of your kids and family opening up all the gifts that St. Nick dropped off overnight. Pair a festive photo with one of these memorable Christmas captions about Santa's anticipated visit, and you'll have one of the most memorable posts come Christmas day.


"Santa Claus has the right idea: Visit people only once a year." — Victor Borge

When the holiday chaos is at its peak, a funny quote like this one is just what everyone needs. Pair it with a picture of the behind-the-scenes party prep or while you're on the road with a gang of excited little elves.


"Christmas is a time when kids tell Santa what they want and adults pay for it." — Richard Lamm

Parents everywhere will get a kick out of this painfully accurate quote. Post it with a snapshot of all those gifts "Santa Claus" brought along, because you should totally give yourself credit where it is due.


"They err who thinks Santa Claus comes down through the chimney; he really enters through the heart." — Paul M. Ell

The chimney isn't always the safest place to be, anyway. This quote is perfect for a touching photo of your family opening up gifts and having a blast. It also reminds those who don't have a chimney for St. Nick to travel through that they shouldn't feel bad.


"Santa works one day a year and spends the rest of it judging."

Hey, there's always room for some sass, even on Christmas day. Share this funny caption with a pile of presents that Santa finally left for the kids.


"Dear Santa, are you a hipster?"

Here's another humorous quote to make your followers laugh. It gets even funnier when it is paired with a picture of someone dressed up as Santa, such as a family member or maybe even yourself. Don't forget the plaid flannel pajama top, wire-rimmed glasses, and beard.


"May Santa Claus grant you all that you wish for this Christmas."

Keep it sweet and simple with this classic holiday saying. As an Instagram caption, it's a lovely way to wish all your friends and family well in one go. Post it with a photo of your family with Santa, or better yet, one of you dressed up as him.


"Santa Claus is on his way. It's going to be a bright and a happy day."

If you're all about festive rhymes, share this catchy quote as a caption. You can even get the kids in on the fun and have them chant it for a festive video clip.


"Believe in Santa... just beclause."

For the lover of all things punny, you can't go wrong with this simple yet humorous statement. Post it with a photo of Santa's gifts under the tree or half-eaten cookies that your kids left out.


"What do you call people who are afraid of Santa Claus? Claustrophobic."

Let's be real. Some kids are so not into Santa, and you might even have the picture to prove it, hysterical tears and all. And while you might feel bad for laughing, this quote just makes it too good to not post.


"When you stop believing in Santa Claus is when you start getting clothes for Christmas." — Anonymous

For older children, this saying is all too appropriate. Share this caption with a photo of more practical gifts, such as a winter jacket that they did not put on their Christmas wish list. It'll be even funnier if they received an ugly Christmas sweater.


"All the world is happy when Santa Claus comes." — Maud Lindsay

When you've got a house full of ridiculously excited (and hyper) children, sneak in a photo and post it with this caption. These exact moments are what makes Christmas so memorable.
