Thanksgiving is believed to date back to the Pilgrim Fathers – although they never actually called themselves “Pilgrims” But they did have the first, so-called ” Thanksgiving ” party or celebration in 1621. This was a secular (worldly rather than spiritual or related to the Church) 3-day harvest festival held sometime between September and November: They dressed plainly in dark clothes and ate wild turkey, venison, seafood, Indian cornmeal, stewed pumpkin, nuts and plums, to offer thanks for their survival (the few that remained). In those days, there was no ham, no mashed potatoes, no pumpkin pie nor cranberry sauce.

The day of Thanksgiving (and its celebration with a Thanksgiving party or dinner) did not become a national holiday in America until the time of President Lincoln in 1863. Turkey, then as now, was the main ingredient of the Thanksgiving meal or supper (and that tradition continues to this day). But the cornucopia (another symbol of Thanksgiving) was not so common. Indeed, in the very early (and difficult) days of 17th Century America, it is unlikely that it featured at all. But nowadays, it is the cornucopia that, perhaps more than any other symbol, symbolises prosperity and well-being at the time of Thanks-giving.
The ideal of the cornucopia comes from Greek mythology: Amalthea was the name of a goat who raised Zeus, future king of the Gods on her breast milk. Her horn was accidentally broken by Zeus whilst they were playing together, and so Zeus, in remorse, gave her a new one which had super-natural powers. Amalthea filled the horn with flowers and fruits and grain. And so now, it is said that if you give a gift to someone of a cornucopia (as at Thanksgiving, for example) that that person will get whatever they wish for. In modern representation, the cornucopia is typically a hollow, horn-shaped wicker basket filled with various kinds of fruit and vegetables.
The Indalo shape (whether it be classical like Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, or spiritual as in the Rainbow Warrior of the ancient North American Indian Cree tribe), is a popular symbol (like the clover leaf, horseshoe, or scarab) used to pass on good luck sentiments to friends and family.
Our lucky charms come from Almeria in southern Spain close to where the original Indalos were discovered. This is a region of ancient culture believed to be the origin of the Neolithic civilisation that spread up into the whole of northern Europe between 4000 and 2000 BC – and the beginning of a megalithic era that was one of the great periods of Spanish and European history and included the construction of the mystical monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury in Britain. Cave paintings of Indalo-type shapes mingle with representations of suns, spirals, animals and labyrinths, each with their own mystical and esoteric meaning.
