Rabbits and bunnies are constants in myth and folklore, across the centuries, across cultures, across religious beliefs.
From saying "rabbit, rabbit" first thing on the first morning of a month to bring luck to carrying a lucky rabbit's foot, rabbits have long been associated with luck, and longevity and, interestingly, the moon and its feminine characteristics.
In many Asian cultures, there is a rabbit-in-the-moon, just as we have our man-in-the-moon. In Chinese culture, the rabbit in the moon has a mortar and pestle and is mixing the elixir of immortality.
The Celts believed that rabbits could carry messages from humankind to the fairies, interesting, since fairies are believed to inhabit the "verges" between grassland and woodland, and rabbits are hedgerow creatures.
And in many Native American cultures, the rabbit is seen as a rascally, mischievous trickster of a character.
