Dude, I don't often indulge in my inner-Asian unless we're talking food and ribbing family members for exhibiting classic stereotypical behaviour, but as a Rabbit and seeing as the upcoming year is the Rabbit -I shall pay homage to my culture and its zodiac. I am welcoming the new year with open arms -from my bed. I know. I'm sick. Sue me.

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 pareidolia 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; but in Japanese and Korean versions it is just pounding mochi.
