Things upon Which You Can Wish


Here are things upon which you can make a wish:

1. Birthday candles

This is probably the most well-known wishing method, and also the strongest, as it only comes once a year. With the cake in front of you, take a deep breath. Make your wish while you are still holding your breath. If you get all the candles blown out with one breath, you wish will come true.

2. Falling stars

This is a nice wish, because multiple people can wish on the same star. All you have to do is see a falling star and make your wish.

3. The First Star

This happens every day, so it’s good for your more mundane wishing.

When you see the first star that appears in the night sky, recite this rhyme:

Star light, star bright

First star I see tonight

I wish I may, I wish I might

Have the wish I wish tonight.

Then make your wish.

4. Wishbones


Wishbones are found in any whole cooked fowl. Generally, the larger the bird, the stronger the wish. Let the wishbone dry out before using it. Once the wishbone is dry, get someone else to hold one end while you hold the other. Close your eyes and make a wish, then pull apart the wishbone on the count of three. Whoever gets the larger piece has their wish come true. In the extremely unlikely event that the pieces are equal, both wishes come true.

5. Necklace clasps

When the clasp on your necklace is turned all the way around to the front, someone else can turn it back for you and tell you to make a wish. This doesn’t work if you do it for yourself.

6. Eyelashes

When an eyelash falls out, blow it off your fingertip and make a wish.

7. Dandelions

This is a very difficult wish to make come true, so I would suggest trying it out with something that’s not very important until you get the hang of it.

Get a dandelion that has gone to seed; that is, the soft white puffy kind. Make your wish, then try to blow all the down off it in one breath. If you get it all off in one puff, your wish will come true.

8. Coins

I think this only works with man-made bodies of water, such as wells, fountains, koi ponds, log flume rides, and so on. Take a coin of any denomination (bigger coins make stronger wishes). The coin should be of the currency of the country in which the wishing water is located.

9. White Horses

If you see a white horse, you can make a wish, but only before you see its tail.

10. Ladybugs

A ladybug has been linked with luck in love, marriage, healing, and newness in life. If a ladybug lands on you, say “Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home” and if it flies off you wish.
