Rabbit's Foot

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In some cultures, the foot of a rabbit is carried as an amulet believed to bring good luck. This belief held by individuals in many parts of the world including Europe, China, Africa, and North and South America. It is likely that this belief has existed in Europe since 600 B.C. amongst celtic people living in Britain. In variations of this superstition, the donor rabbit must possess certain attributes, or have been killed in a particular place, or killed by a particular method, or by a person possessing particular attributes (e.g. by a cross-eyed man). The belief in North American Folklore may originate in the system of African-American folk magic known as hoodoo. A number of strictures attached to the charm that are now observed mostly in the breach: First, not any foot from a rabbit will do: it is the left hind foot of a rabbit that is useful as a charm. Second, not any left hind foot of a rabbit will do, the rabbit must have been shot or otherwise captured in a cemetery.
