Yet before you purchase a fall cornucopia, why not learn a little more about this iconic Thanksgiving symbol?
The History of the Cornucopia
Traditionally, the cornucopia was not a harvest or fall symbol. In fact, according to Greek legend, the cornucopia was a magical horn, broken from the head of a god or an enchanted goat, depending on which legend you follow, that had the magical ability to stay full of whatever the owner needed. It was, therefore the symbol of endless bounty.
Based on this legend, which varies between Zeus and Hercules, the original cornucopia was actually a real goat’s horn filled with fruits, grains and berries. Of course, you would not want a goat’s horn on your Thanksgiving table, and you would probably prefer to eat fall’s harvest than decorate with it, but the basic idea remains the same. The cornucopia, with its horn shape and autumn beauty and abundance spilling out, still shows the beauty and bounty of fall.
