In Irish folklore other-worldly animals are always white - and the hare was often the leader of the hunt. When the hunt crossed water - it took you into another world. This is where Lewis Carroll got his idea for the white rabbit (which Alice followed to another world: Wonderland)

The Moon rabbit, also called the Jade Rabbit, is a rabbit that lives on the moon in East Asian folklore. The legends about the moon rabbit are based on the traditional lore that identifies the markings of the moon as a rabbit pounding in a mortar. In Chinese folklore, it is often portrayed as a companion of the moon goddess Chang'e, constantly pounding the elixir of life for her.

In some European countries hare is considered to be the spirit of the reaped corn and the hare was ritually sacrificed at the end of the harvest season in such rites known as 'Killing the Hare' or 'Cutting the Hare'. The last stand of corn was taken up and gathered to create the hare, being divided up into three plaited parts and the 'ears' tied into a knot. The reapers would retire several feet away and throw their sickles in turn attempting to cut this last sheaf that represented the hare or spirit of the corn below the knot.
