Cornucopia: Thanksgiving symbol of abundance

The cornucopia (from Latin cornu copiae) or horn of plenty is a symbol of abundance and nourishment, commonly a large horn-shaped container overflowing with produce, flowers, nuts, other edibles, or wealth in some form.

In North America, the cornucopia is typically a hollow, horn-shaped wicker basket filled with various kinds of fall harvested fruit and vegetables and has come to be associated with Thanksgiving.
