I’ve been thinking today about ways that we have fun making wishes. I know that these are just for fun, but they can be just that…fun! Just making a wish can add cheer to your day and give you something positive to think about. So, what are some ways we make wishes? Here’s a few that I thought of…
#1.) You make a wish before you blow out the candles on your birthday cake.
#2.) You can make a wish on the first star you see in the sky at night. When I was a kid, we would say this little poem when we saw the first star…yes, it had to be the first star you saw. 😉
“Star light, star bright, First star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might, Have the wish I wish tonight.”
#3.) You can make a wish when you find a “wish chip” in a bag of potato chips. Just in case you haven’t heard of “wish chips”, it’s a chip that is folded over. Like these two chips…
(I was married before I heard about “wish chips”, so don’t feel bad if this is the first time you’ve heard of them.) But check out this chip! It’s folded over TWICE so does that mean you can make 2 wishes on 1 chip?! 🙂
#4.) You can make a wish before you blow all the white fluffy seeds off of a white dandelion. 🙂
#5.) One of my favorite childhood memories was when it was my turn to break the wishbone when Mom cooked a turkey. 🙂 Two people hold the wishbone between them, each having their hand on one side of the bone and their thumbs resting on the side of the top of the wishbone. On the count of three, both people pull up and out and the wishbone breaks into 2 pieces. The person that gets the biggest piece is supposed to get their wish. 🙂
Do you know more ways to make wishes? That’s the ones that have come to my mind today. I can almost hear Jiminy Cricket singing…”When you wish upon a star, Makes no difference who you are…” 😉 Happy wishing!
