The Wishbone


THE WISHBONE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


Many of the best old wives tales are centered around the holidays, or holiday meals. One of the oldest and most fun is the wishbone. After the Thanksgiving turkey has been cooked and served, many families dry the breastbone for a couple days. Then, when the bone becomes dry enough to break, two people will pull on either half until it breaks. The person with the longer half is said to have his or her wish come true.

This is an old wives tale that has been around for a long time, and while there is no explanation as to why a wish would come true, many families still observe this practice year after year. Do the wishes come true because of the wishbone? Probably not, but itís a fun tradition to observe and one that children typically look forward to year after year!
Of course this old wives tale isnít just observed after the Thanksgiving turkey, but any time that a turkey is eaten!
