 A common image that we see during the Thanksgiving holiday is that of the cornucopia. In classical antiquity, the cornucopia from Latin cornu (horn) and copia (abundance), also called the horn of plenty, was a symbol of abundance and nourish-ment, commonly a large horn-shaped container overflowing with produce, flowers, or nuts.

 The cornucopia is an appropriate image for Thanksgiving because it serves as a reminder of the many tangible blessings that we enjoy every day.
