Why the bunny rabbit has wiggly slits for a nose

The Moon sent the Rabbit to the earth to inform humans that as she died away and rose again, so humankind could die and rise again.

The Moon said to the Rabbit, "Go the humans and tell them, 'Like as I die and rise to life again, so you also shall die and rise to life again.'"

The Rabbit went to the leader of the humans, and said instead, "Like as I die and do not rise to life again, so you shall also die, and not rise to life again."

When Rabbit returned, the Moon asked, "What did you say to the humans?"

Rabbit said, "I have told them, 'Like as I die and do not rise to life again, so you shall also die and not rise to life again.'"

The moon in her anger then took a great big stick and hit the Rabbit on his nose, which is why the Rabbit has a slit nose and constantly wiggles it from soreness to this very day.

Meet the Author.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My mother is a historian of African culture and history and her influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
