The Legends Behind the Rabbit

by Luckables Staff |

Lucky symbols have many different interpretations. In this blog series, you'll learn about some of the myths and stories behind these highly recognized symbols of luck. We hope you enjoy learning the backstory of how your Luckable earned its lucky status.


The belief that a rabbit brings luck is held by numerous places around the world, including Europe, China, Africa, and North and South America. Although many believe the legends of the lucky rabbit foot date far back in time, there are no written records before the 20th century. 

Celtic lore held that rabbits were lucky since they lived below ground and could easily communicate with the gods. The idea of a rabbit being lucky was also taken up by practitioners of Hoodoo in the American South. In many cultures, the foot of a rabbit is carried as an amulet believed to bring good luck. Specifically, the hind left foot. 

Since rabbits are notoriously known for being fertile and heavily associated with spring and renewal, rabbits are popular among people who are trying to have a child. Women who want to conceive have carried a rabbit charm for hundreds of years. 

Many people also believe that if you say "rabbit, rabbit" on the first morning of every month, you’ll be granted good fortune and luck for the entirety of the month. Get and give the luck with Ruby the Rabbit. Shop here!
