Japanese traditional culture ~48~ The moon

  Traditionally, we sometimes say, you can see two rabbits on the moon.
The pattern we can see on the moon in Japan is decribed: two rabbits
are making a "mochi".Those rabbits are pounding steamed rice used for rice cakes.
  I've heard there is the similar story in the other countries.
  It may depends on the pattern which people can see on the moon.
  How do you descibe in your culture?
