Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness... it's an occasion to be spent in the warm and loving company of family, loved ones and friends enjoying turkey roast and pumpkin pies with them. Thanksgiving is also an opportunity to renew the ties that bind us with the ones we love... it is a time for remembering, cherishing and being thankful for all the good things you have been blessed with. So it's time to say 'Happy Thanksgiving'

Everything About Wishbone

The story behind the “wishbone” intrigues many people. And those who don't know they can obviously come to know about it this Thanksgiving from their parents or grandparents over the dinner. The custom of breaking the V-shaped bone of fowl to make a wish is atleast 2,400 years old. For little information to reveal, the origin can be traced back to the Etruscans ( people from west and south of Apennines,in the Italian peninsula). When a fowl was killed the bird's collar-bone was laid in the sun to dry. An Etruscan still wishing to benefit from the oracle's powers had only to pick up the bone and stroke it (not break it) and make a wish; hence the name "wishbone”. Roman legend states that the Etruscans chose the V-shaped clavicle for a symbolic reason: it resembles the human crotch. Thus, a symbol of repository of life was employed to unravel life's mysteries. In all, we have inherited more than the Etruscan wishbone superstition. Etymologists claim that the expression "get a lucky break" initially applied to the person winning the larger half in a wishbone tug-of-war. While there has been lot of ballyhoo regarding vegan thanksgiving and non vegan thanksgiving, the wishbone also shares the same bowl of contention. When the feast is over there is lot of wishbones that will be left on the windowsill to dry and without the presence of most of the guests it would then become oblivious. Ken Ahroni, president Lucky Break Wishbone Corp., invented this company so that everybody including the vegetarians have chance to make a wish. Lucky wishbone is perfect as gift idea also it is apt for fundraiser, special events, corporate gifts etc. Have you tried one of them? I have. Its fun to have them all through out the year and it comes in vibrant colors and images on it. It is also a hit with the kids and adults. So wishbones are not limited to one per turkey now you can have them and start cracking them to see who wins the best part!
