Giving Thanks as Holidays Collide
Thursday marked a once-in-a-lifetime holiday as Thanksgiving and the first full day of Hanukkah shared the same calendar date for the first time since 1888, a confluence that won’t occur again for tens of thousands of years.
Images of turkeys and latkes—and even an occasional “menurky"—from around the world flooded our Instagram feeds as friends and families gathered to celebrate and share these special holiday events.
We saw record usage as Instagrammers shared a heaping helping of holiday cheer. Your Thanksgiving and Hanukkah-related photos and videos helped make yesterday our busiest so far—and for that we give thanks to you.
We continue to be inspired by our community and are truly humbled that so many of you choose to capture and share your holiday moments on Instagram. So from the Instagram team to you, we say “thank you.” We hope you enjoy a safe and happy holiday season.
[gently and kindly reminding you that someday someone is going to look at you and finally understand every sappy love song they’ve ever heard]

here’s your daily reminder that
- you aren’t worthless
- you’re worth more than you think you are
- you mean a lot to someone
- you’ve done something to make someone laugh or smile
- you’ve laughed and smiled
- you’re good enough
- you deserve to be happy
- you’re allowed to be sad
- you’re you and nothing can change that
- and there’s no one else you need to be
do you ever feel physically sick because you know you’re not good enough for anybody and you can’t do anything right and you’re too tired
