This post is features one of our participants for the upcoming Artisans Summit – Moon Rabbit Press. It also relates how we had sighted the “rabbit in the moon” twice this week.”
This is extremely surprising because I don’t remember hearing about a rabbit in the moon before.
The most I knew about the moon as a child is that moon is cookie (thanks Cookie Monster) and it is also made of cheese.
First appearance – Moon Rabbit Press
When filming for the artisans summit, I asked the owner of “Moon Rabbit Press” how she came up with the name of her business.
She said she had two rabbits when she was younger, but she also was intrigued by the folklore story of the rabbit in the moon.
Second appearance – “Over the Moon”
The second appearance of the rabbit in the moon happens when you let your husband pick a movie to watch.
Somehow, we ended up watching the Netflix movie “Over the Moon,” which is based on an old folklore about Chang’e who has a companion rabbit, and they live on the moon waiting for her lover.
(Ironically, when looking for more information on the folklores about the moon rabbit, I found this article that talks about how the moon rabbit saved the people from plague many many years ago. Maybe we need the moon rabbit to visit us. In the article, there are also other stories of moon rabbits if you are interested.)
Those were our two recent encounters with the moon rabbit.
