According to the lunar tradition, the rabbit is considered the luckiest of the 12 animals in the Chinese calendar. Per popular legend, the rabbit was chosen as the pet of the moon goddess Chang’e, which is where the creature earned its auspicious reputation. Some also believe that the rabbit is the incarnation of Chang’e and that its shape can be seen in the moon itself.
