Seeing the new moon through glass...!


It is supposed to very bad luck to see a new moon through glass. One old lady that I have heard of became very ill after after seeing it through a window, ever since then to avoid a re occurance of this illness she has her sister lead her out blindfold into the garden where her eyes are uncovered and she can view the moon safely. To guard against ill luck turn over any silver that you may have in your pocket.
If you look closely, with one eye shut and looking the other way there is supposed to be the image of a rabbit on the moons surface. The Moon Rabbit lives on the moon and spends his time pounding with a pestle and mortar to create the elixir of life.
In a  Buddhist   tale a monkey, an otter, a jackal, and a rabbit resolved to practice charity on the day of the full moon, believing a demonstration of great virtue would bring them great rewards.
When an old man begged for food, the monkey gathered fruits from the trees and the otter collected fish, while the jackal wrongfully pilfered a lizard and a pot of milk-curd. The rabbit, who knew only how to gather grass, instead offered its own body, throwing itself into a fire the man had built. The rabbit, however, was not burnt. The old man revealed himself to be Sakra and, touched by the rabbit's virtue, drew the likeness of the rabbit on the moon for all to see. It is said the lunar image is still draped in the smoke that rose when the rabbit cast itself into the fire.
