Thanks for playing our Thanksgiving ‘Caption This!’ Contest. Congratulations to all of the winners! The judges had a hard time making a decision. So many good submissions were sent in! Read the winning entries below.

We compiled nine vintage Thanksgiving greetings the ‘Caption This!’ Thanksgiving 2017 contest. We’re looking for interesting captions in the Victorian vernacular (extra points for this). Funny, serious, poignant, whatever direction you’d like to take is fine with us. The only thing we ask is that you keep your caption family-friendly. You may caption one character in the greeting or all of them. Let us know who is “speaking” so we can enjoy your train of thought.

Happy Thanksgiving from Recollections. Have fun playing ‘Caption This!’ Thanksgiving 2017!
