For those educated in superstitions....

We had a wishbone from a chicken that we dried out, to make a wish on...a silly little thing we do for fun.... Well me and my husband wished for the same thing, and instead of one of us getting the "bigger half" (knuckle), the knuckle popped right off and my Dh and I got both ends and the knuckle fell to the floor...Any idea what that's supposed to mean?

  • Huh... I have no idea. I only know that if you get the bigger half your wish will come true.

  • If you are supposed to get the knucke to get your wish and the knuckle fell to the floor then maybe that mean you won't get your wish. Remember you are not supposed to tell anyone your wish so if you know what DH wished for then that breaks the wish.

  • Once the merrythought is dry, it is given to two people (usually children), who pull it apart until it cracks and breaks, each one making a wish while doing so. The person who gets the "long half" of the wishbone will have his or her wish "come true." If the wishbone breaks evenly, both parties get their wishes. In some families it is said that the wish will only come true if it is not revelaed to anyone. (The belief that a wish must be kept secret to ensure its fulfillment also occurs in "first star" and birthday candle wishing rituals).

    Ok this is what I found when I googled... Me and mY husband wished the same thing, and we both get our wish....YAY!!!!!!! Thanks again
