Nevertheless, this critter will be on people's minds a little longer. The next full moon is the Hare Moon (May 17, 2011).
The moon's symbol in Chinese tradition is - the rabbit. (The peacock represents the sun). Together they are the Yin (moon) and Yang. The rabbit (Yin) holds the magic and strength of the heavens. Look up on the next full moon night and take it in.
The Chinese Zodiac keeps it in the spotlight longer still. This is the year of the Hare, or Rabbit. A Hare (Rabbit) Year is supposed to nurture a time of calm, renewal, good taste and comfort. Can't we all use some of that?
I've used 'hare' or 'rabbit' interchangeably so far, but I've read you shouldn't confuse them. The difference being rabbits are born hairless and hares are born, well, you know. Hares also run faster and don't freeze in place when frightened. Not sure how well those bunnies would keep in the freezer then. Chocolate gets a coat of white on it if you do that. Called a sugar bloom.
