Cornucopia or Horn of Plenty associates with Thanksgiving, the same as turkey and brown leaves. It symbolizes prosperity ‒a goat’s horn filled with grain and flowers and fruit. It is also called Cornucopia in Greek mythology. The origin of the essence of nourishment in Cornucopia is from Zeus. When he was a kid, he was taken care of by Amalthea, a goat, even he drank her milk. One day, they played together and accidentally, Zeus broke off one of her horns. By his power, he made the horn as a meaning of eternal nourishment. Until today, Horn of Plenty relates to Thanksgiving as the reminder of blessings, abundance, and wealth for the upcoming days. The decorations can be made from bread, metal, ceramic, and weaved-plant material. Fruits, vegetables, slices of bread, nuts and grains, even leaves and flowers are put on the horn as the symbol of prosperity.
