The holiday season has officially kicked off. After nearly two years of social distancing, Thanksgiving in 2021 saw a return to semi-normal, as people shared pics of their families and friends safely gathering, and expressed what they’re grateful for after an eventful year. Several celebs got in on the fun too, sharing snaps from their celebrations, with some already looking ahead to Christmas and the end of the year. Here are the best celebrity Instagram posts for Thanksgiving 2021, from Jennifer Lopez to Dolly Parton to Michelle Obama.

“Happy Thanksgiving! This year of life has been the most fulfilling yet. I will never forget all the lessons, challenges and opportunities for growth I’ve been shown, and I’m grateful for it all—the good, the bad and everything in between. I’ve grown a lot and I am still evolving. This month, I became a wife and I’m so grateful to not only my amazing husband, but also the wonderful friends and family that surrounded us on our wedding weekend and have supported us along the way. This next chapter will be my best to come, not only as a wife, advocate and business woman, but as the Paris I’m more and more proud to be every day. I’m so excited to keep creating more with my new media company, 11:11 Media, and the other exciting ventures I’m pursuing. I’m thankful for the outpouring of love and support from my fans and those who have stuck by me since the beginning. You all mean the world to me. Love you all and keep dreaming and shining your light! The world needs every bit of love you have to offer! #HappyThanksgiving #Grateful”

We send our warmest wishes to everyone celebrating today, and hope you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.”

From my family to yours, happy Thanksgiving.”
