Good Luck Rabbit

             Some say that the left hind foot of a rabbit is lucky! But where did this belief come from? I first heard of this form of luck on a television show called supernatural, this form of luck appears in other television shows as well such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and other “supernatural” shows. Some believe this form of luck to originate from
African-American folk magic, hoodoo. The left hind foot of a rabbit is useful as a charm. Not any left hind foot of a rabbit will do; the rabbit must have been shot or captured in a cemetery. the phase of the moon is also important. Some say that the rabbit must be taken in the full moon, while others hold instead that the rabbit must be taken in the new moon. Some say instead that the rabbit must be taken on a Friday, or a rainy Friday, or Friday the 13th. Some sources say that the rabbit should be shot with a silver bullet, while others say that the foot must be cut off while the rabbit is still alive. So just to make sure you get the luck if a rabbits hind left foot you must; Shoot it with a silver bullet, but only enough to wound it so it is still alive and then cut its left hind foot off. While doing all of this on a full moon, on a rainy Friday the 13th. And if that doesn’t work then you have to do everything again but on a new moon! So who is ready to get a rabbit’s foot charm? I should probably check the moons position on the next Friday the 13th and what the weather will be like!
These are the "rabbit feet" you can get now
at the store for 50 cents so you do not have
to go through all the trouble of
getting one yourself!

Here's a link to a website that talks about the findings of a 53 million year old rabbits foot, and what the ancient uses might have been, so check it out:
