How to make a wish on a wishbone

The game of the wishbone has been a favourite for thousands of years.
For more than two centuries, wishes have been made as the unbroken bone clavicle is pulled apart by two people.
The wisher who breaks off the bigger section of the bone clavicle is said to have their wish granted.
The saying ‘get a lucky break’ comes from this tradition. The custom of snapping these bones is now a widespread tradition over Thanksgiving Weekend.

Where did the wishbone tradition come from? 

Such custom initially came from the Etruscans, an ancient Italian civilisation, who got it from the Romans and since became a phenomenon across Europe. The sentiment of luck and wishes that the Wishbone brings has resulted in it bearing great significant in this day and age. The Wishbone Necklace symbolises these exact values. The story of wishbones and their bringing of hope and power to grant wishes is said to have originated as early as 322BC. The practices and faith surrounding the wishbone had a lasting influence on Roman culture and further on to early European and American cultures.
