Top 5 White Rabbits Through the Years – Caro
1. White Rabbit from the book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll, 1865. This is the first image we have of the White Rabbit and it has given every other version where to take an example from, whether it is animation or live action.
2. White Rabbit from the Disney version in 1951, voice by Bill Thompson. I loved how this one looked, it didn’t have typical long ears and it carried around an umbrella and little spectacles.
3. White Rabbit played by Richard Coombs / Kiran Shah in the TV movie from 1999. I really like how all the characters are portrayed in this movie and this Rabbit was good for its live action version.
4. White Rabbit played by Alan Gray from the SyFy mini-series ‘Alice’, 2009. This particular rabbit wasn’t one of my favorites, it was good to see the Rabbit as a human but I’ve always seen the White Rabbit sort of like a good character. Although I did like the way his hair resembled the Rabbit’s ears.
5. White Rabbit voice by Michael Sheen in Tim Burton’s 2010 movie. I really like this new version of the White Rabbit and having Michael’s voice just made it even better!

Top 5 Lucky Charms – Karolina
1. four leaf clover – Iconic symbol of luck. Some Irish legends state each leaflet represents something: the first is for hope, the second is for faith, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck. (St Partick iconisized the three leafed shamrock to be a symbol of the holy trinity)
2.Dragons– In Western Culture these mythical, mystical creatures are considered evil and hateful – while in eastern cultures (and in gaelic cultures) they are symbols of luck and good fortune.
3. Scarabs– The Ancient Egyptians believed the scarab beetles to be sacred. They also saw these dung beetles to be symbols of reborth, and would carve out charms of them for luck
4. elephants – Big, yet magestic creatures that are considered lucky in a few cultures, and are incredably endearing creatures as well!
5. rabbit foot -The belief that a rabbit’s foot is lucky seems to have become a commonplace of American popular culture, but at one time in the past this belief was considered a Southern superstition, specifically one of strictly African-American origin. Rabbit’s foot is said to have protective powers (it’s last on my list because it’s kind of … well I don’t think I could wear one)
