People wish on many different type things such as a lucky rock, throwing a penny in a fountain, rabbits foot, splitting a chicken wish bone, blowing out candles on a birthday cake, the moon, rainbows and of course a falling star.
Wishing On A Star - Rose Royce (1978)
People wish for many different things in this world. We wish for a new home or car. To see a loved one during the holidays. A better job or just to have a job. To be #1 in a sports tournament, We wish to fall in love, win a contest, pass a test. We wish for prosperity. Mostly people wish for good health upon themselves or a loved one.
There are many organizations which make wishes come true. One of the most successful is the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Make-A-wish was formed in 1980 and grants wishes for children from ages 2 1/2 to 18 who have life threatening medical conditions.
Here is a link to their website if you wish to find out more about them:
