In this week’s “Symbols Series,” we’ll be discussing the wishbone. Wait, “You mean the turkey bone used in Thanksgiving traditions?” Yes, that’s the one! Read on to learn about the history and the meaning of the wishbone.
The Thanksgiving wishbone tradition dates back to the ancient Romans, who believed it was good luck to pull apart chicken clavicles. In the 16th century, the English adopted these Roman beliefs under a new name, the “merrythought.” The word wishbone wasn’t actually included in dictionaries until the mid 1800s, around the time Thanksgiving was declared a national holiday.
The wishbone is a symbol of good luck. When participating in the wishbone tradition at Thanksgiving, two people tug on either ends of the bone (we know you’ve played this game!), and whoever ends up with the longer piece, is said to have their wish granted.

Traditionally the last Thursday in November is all about the ‘thanks’ but for most of us, Thanksgiving means something entirely different.
Martha Stewart may make it all look so easy – but hey if we had a crew of hundreds preparing the turkey ‘earlier’ and an entire ‘crafting’ unit folding the napkins into dancing swans, we might find the time to chit-chat with the in-laws or carve out home-made candle holders from old soap.
This year, for many, saying ‘thanks’ is harder than ever. Financial heave-hos-political posturing and an economic outlook that’s wobblier than the jello means finding the ‘thanks’ for the year will involve a few bottles of seriously fermented grape juice.
Our advice for enjoying a peaceful and thankful day… eat elsewhere. Buy your hosts something so stylish and sparkly that you’ll be absolved from all kitchen duties. And if all else fails, just remember – it’s a day of thanks – thanks that you’re not a turkey.
