If there's one thing we can be thankful for in 2020, it's Courteney Cox's sense of humour. The Friends star, who played Monica Geller in the hit sitcom for 236 episodes, recently took to Instagram to bless us with the most wholesome of content: her dancing with a turkey on her head.

"Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you're having a great day," she began. Here might be a good place to point out that Courteney needs to drop her skincare routine ASAP. I mean, look at that glow.

She continued, "I'm feeling so thankful and also, if I get one more goddamn GIF with that turkey on my head dancing like a f**king fool, I'm just going to snap." Is, erm, this the GIF she's talking about?

"So... anyway, since I'm the symbol of Thanksgiving, here you go. Hope it makes you happy." Cue Courteney performing a modern day version of what can only be described as 'the turkey dance'. Suffice to say, it made us very happy.

And judging by the comments on her post, we're not the only ones whose days have been made. Fellow Friends star Lisa Kudrow commented, "You DID THAT!" Yep, she certainly did. While Big Little Lies actress Reese Witherspoon added, "Love you sister!" and Queer Eye's Tan France simply said, "Bahahahahaha. <3," which pretty much covers it.

Even David Beckham joined the party, commenting, "OMG this just made my day @courteneycoxofficial @friends❤️."

The original Friends episode, 'The One With All the Thanksgivings', aired in 1998 and is beloved by Friends fans as Monica's turkey dance prompts Chandler to tell her he loves her. After watching Courteney's recreation of the dance, we don't blame him one bit.
