Thanksgiving is full of comedy material. There's the signature American gluttony, the widespread ignorance of its dark history, and, of course, coping with being around your family.

But whether you're spending the holiday at your relatives', hosting a Friendsgiving, or just hanging out by yourself with takeout at home, chances are, you'll need a little break to recover from the food coma at some point during the day. Don't worry. Bored Panda has you covered.

We've put together a list of funny Thanksgiving memes that perfectly capture the essence of Turkey Day, so put on your stretchiest sweatpants, pour yourself a drink, and get ready for some giggles!

Oh, and if you forgot how everyone celebrated Thanksgiving last year, fire up our post from 2020.

The best thing about black friday is waking up at 9am, having coffee while watching YouTube vids of chaotic black friday shoppers from the safety and warmth of my couch.

After the inlaws were exposed to covid on friday, all plans cancelled. Thats exactly what we are doing today. After two years of cancelled Thanksgiving, it may become our new tradition.

One of the first Thanksgiving celebrations was in 1621, when the Plymouth colonists and the Wampanoag shared an autumn harvest feast.

Pilgrims held their second Thanksgiving celebration in 1623 to commemorate the end of a long drought that had threatened the year's harvest and prompted Governor Bradford to call for a religious fast. Days of fasting and thanksgiving on an annual or occasional basis became common practice in other New England settlements as well.

For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states, and it wasn't until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

In many American households, Thanksgiving has lost much of its original religious significance; it now centers mostly on cooking and sharing a bountiful meal with family and friends. When it comes to turkey, a Thanksgiving staple so ubiquitous it has become an essential part of the holiday, we aren't sure if it was or wasn't served when the Pilgrims hosted the inaugural feast in 1621.

But today, 85 to 90 percent of Americans prepare the bird—whether roasted, baked or deep-fried—on Thanksgiving. Other traditional foods include stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Volunteering is a common Thanksgiving Day activity, and communities often hold food drives and host free dinners for the less fortunate.

Although the American concept of Thanksgiving developed in the colonies of New England, you could theoretically trace its roots back to the other side of the Atlantic. Both the Separatists who came over on the Mayflower and the Puritans who arrived soon after brought with them a tradition of providential holidays—a time of fasting during difficult or pivotal moments and days of feasting and celebration to thank God in times of plenty.

Imagine the memes they'd share!

It's weird but growing up we always seemed to tolerate racism or sexism from Grandpa because of his age. There really is no excuse for it however old you are. Just because you're old it doesn't give you a free pass to be an a$$hole.

No, it's just the one day of the year we celebrate it. The rest of the year we just don't really talk about it.

My boyfriend is venezuelan and my family is a bunch of racists - so they pretend he doesn't exist and still ask me at every family reunion why I'm "still single". Well, f**k you, we'll stay at home and eat a turkey all by ourselves.

Was I the only kid in the history of ever who just ate what they were given? I'm sure I was well-loved and pandered to in other areas, but food was food so we ate it.
