You might think this day should fall on Easter but nope, it’s in September. The UK was the first to celebrate rabbits, a very loving animal that never really hurt anyone. Sure they ate gardens and destroyed crops but they didn’t mean any harm. The holiday is always celebrated the 4th Saturday of September and it is a world wide event. Rabbits make decent pets, true they are a little messy but they can be kind and gentle. But rabbits are wild animals and probably should be left in the wild (As with all animals). There are 305 domesticated breeds in the world and 13 wild species.
How to celebrate – Look for rabbits in the wild. Put food out for rabbits if you want them to come around. Be gentle with one of the most caring animals in the world.
At first, I thought Bugs Bunny created today, but he didn’t. he was created out of the international world’s love for rabbits. The day was created by “Rabbit Charity” in the UK, which sadly seems to have disappeared.
Rabbits are one of the most docile animals in the world. There bear no one, or thing, an ill will. Farmers get ad at them because they eat the fruit and vegetables the farmers grow but it’s not the rabbit’s fault… they are only doing what comes naturally to them.
Bunnies are the third most popular pet in the world, coming in just after dogs and cats. They do bite, but only if you get too close to their food or if you hurt them. They are soft and cuddly and while they probably would rather just be left alone to do their thing, they do make pretty good pets.
Even most other animals get along with them, though some find them tasty for lunch. There are 49 different types of rabbits. Well 50 if you count Bugs. Most of us can’t name them and most of us don’t care. They have pretty much populated the world and can live in nearly any environment.
And they make most people happy. Real or imagined, and particularly at Easter.
How to celebrate – See how many varieties of rabbits you can name. Get a rabbit for a pet. Admire Mother Nature’s creatures.
