Thanks for the interesting article. It's kind of funny how we have these symbols surrounding our holidays and we don't always stop to think where they came from. Now I know! (well, at least for this one!)

Thank you!

Well Gwen;
My cornucopia is not as pretty or big as yours, but we do enjoy it as a table decor for our Thanksgiving table. So, I have a touch of Europe (woven basket) Greek-Roman (horn of Zesus or Hercules) thing going on at my table. Hmmm but the pumpkin is from America, and so it the corn. Wait --- I think there is some little tiny blue corn I grew a decade back some where in all that stuff???

The only credit I can take for the cornucopia pictured in the article is that I searched out the photo. Your table is gorgeous; it's got thankfulness written all over it. The beauty of America is that we borrow a little bit from everyone, then make it uniquely ours! Thanks for sharing, and have a lovely Thanksgiving.

I teach college level English to groups of high school students who qualify to take the classes. I'm always sharing word origins with them and this is they will enjoy. I'll bet you were a great librarian! Thanks for giving, Gwen!

Wow, jazzy1, I feel like I've hit the big time with your high school students reading my article! My librarianship was more "Very Hungry Caterpillar" than "Great Expectations"--but I'm so pleased that you're using my writing for instruction : )
