The tradition of the Wishbone:


The tradition of breaking wishbone dates back to ancient Italy. The Romans believed that birds possessed divine powers & that by keeping the wishbone would give them access to those powers.

Now it is more of a Christmas tradition, where two people each grab a side and break the bone apart while making a wish. Whoever breaks off the larger part of the wishbone will have their wish granted.
