The wishbone has long been a symbol of good luck and hope for the future. Ancient Romans were the first to see the wishbone as a symbol of luck, which eventually turned into the tradition of actually breaking it apart. As the Romans traveled through Europe, they brought this tradition with them, and the English eventually adopted this practice too. The tradition of breaking a turkey wishbone started with the Pilgrims, and the term ‘wishbone’ was created in U.S. in the mid-1800s.
