Want to know more about why wishbones are lucky? In 700BC Etruscans believed birds could tell the future. They would save the wishbone and hold it for good fortune.
Later Romans picked up on this superstition but....chickens were scarce. They resorted to breaking the wishbone in half so there were enough lucky charms to go around! This tradition was passed to the British, who brought it to America where there were wild turkeys everywhere - and the lucky wishbone became common. Pretty great story isn’t it! Just remember, we believe you make your own luck.
