    Rabbits were thought to be sacred and powerful creatures throughout Western Europe even prior to 600 B.C. because people believed that rabbits contained human spirits and that humans descended from certain animals like the rabbit. Later in time, the Celtics became huge believers in the luck of the rabbit. They thought that rabbits were able to be inhabited by the underground spirits called numina and that they were symbols of reproduction and success. Since then the rabbit has been thought to be lucky by many cultures, and the rabbit foot became a convenient way to carry around that luck.
