The meanings of rabbits in history

Rabbits are more than just adorable little animals we learned to love as little children. In many cultures, the rabbit is an animal of the moon and is a symbol of masculinity and fertility. Anglo-Saxon mythology has it that the goddess, Ostara, often appeared as a white rabbit. She would store colored eggs during the annual spring fertility festivals in ancient Britain, which were then offered to the children in the village. The practice continues to this day and is the origin of the Easter Bunny tradition.
