Are you familiar with the superstition of saying “Rabbit, Rabbit” on the first day of the month? I hadn’t heard of the expression until a friend said it to me last month.
According to superstition, you should say or repeat the word “rabbit” or “rabbits”, or “white rabbits”, out loud upon waking on the first day of the month, because doing so will ensure good luck for the duration of that month.
As with most folklore, there are numerous variations of this expression, but I couldn’t find out much about the origin of “Rabbit, Rabbit” other than a little tidbit on Wikipedia.
With arrival of March, we’re 20 days closer to hopping into spring, so I have some “rabbit, rabbits” to bring good luck, along with a little spring and Easter inspiration!
