Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit

It’s the first of the month!  Time for rabbits!

What? You don’t do that in your house?

OK, well, that doesn’t surprise me, because it’s a really weird superstition.  Supposedly, whoever is the first to say “Rabbit” or “Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” on the first of the month is supposed to have good luck.  (Or, if you’re super competitive, like my husband and I, the first one to text/say/leave a note saying “Rabbit” gets to “win” for that month.)

I’m not sure where we picked up this habit, but we’ve been doing it for years.  It wasn’t from when we were kids (because when I was a kid, my brother and I would to do “A pinch and a punch for the first of the month,” until our mom had to ban it because we kept trying to beat each other up).  According to Wikipedia, it’s a British superstition from around the turn of the century, but that doesn’t shed much light on where I picked it up.

Anyway, let’s try to get extra-good luck by starting off this month talking about rabbit-themed patterns!

I love these wee little rabbits- look at their adorable little ears!  How cute!

One thought on “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit

    Oh my goodness…I thought our family was the only one who did the “Rabbits-Rabbits-Rabbits thing the first day of the Month…I’ve been doing this since I was a small child! To receive the “Luck” for the whole month…it must be said as soon as you wake up and get out of bed…the first words spoken! Thanks so much…this really put a huge smile on my face today. Beautiful bunnies!
