The cornucopia first appeared in Greek mythology in the story of Zeus who broke it accidentally from Amalthea (a goat) and in return Zeus turned it into the “horn of plenty”. The traditional cornucopia was a curved goat's horn filled to brim with fruits and grains. Thus the tradition of using the horn as the symbol of plenty transverses generations until American pioneers adopted it as the symbol for thanksgiving.
