It’s true that some types of shoes may be regarded as lucky but what about some types of feet? Well, for the unlucky rabbit it seems their feet may be incredibly lucky for us humans.
We’ve already explained why the horseshoe is considered lucky and why having one hanging the 'right way' on your wall might make you millions. Let’s now take a look at the lucky feet of the rabbit!
Some interesting facts about the lucky rabbit’s foot:
- Whilst we can trace a good many lucky symbols back to antiquity the rabbits foot is certainly one of humanity’s oldest good luck symbols dating back to before 600 BC.
- The rabbit in its entirety was seen by many ancient cultures as symbols of good luck owing to the fact that they were such prolific procreators. They thus acquired the associations of fertility, good harvests and prosperity.
- The rabbit’s foot was considered especially lucky perhaps out of convenience. It is not practical to carry an entire rabbit around with you so the foot was selected as a symbol of the rabbit itself. It is small and thus easy to preserve and carry around.
- Not only does the belief in lucky rabbit’s feet date back thousands of years, the belief is also incredibly widespread being held across Europe, China, Africa, and the Americas.
- As with most things in life there is always more to the story. Many varying beliefs exist about which exact foot on the rabbit is considered most lucky with many believing it to be the left hind foot (perhaps in part because the hind legs of the rabbit are stronger than the front legs).
- The method by which the rabbit must have been killed, the characteristics of the person who kills the rabbit and the place, day and time where the rabbit is killed will all contribute to the level of luck contained within the rabbit’s foot. For optimum good luck the rabbit needs to be shot by a cross-eyed man in a cemetery on a Friday at either a full or a new moon.
