This vintage Thanksgiving wishbone postcard shows a Turkey with golden wishbone and a bright blue ribbon. Surrounded by autumn colors it is a great reminder of the fun of pulling the wishbone on Thanksgiving Day.
The pulling of the wishbone is an American Thanksgiving Day tradition. It is a tug-of-war between two people with the wishbone. The winner, the one with the longest end of the wishbone, gets his or her wish and gets first choice of cuts from the turkey dinner.
