It’s the first of the month.
It’s Sylvilagus floridanus time again!
RABBIT RABBIT RABBIT!
Utter that mantra, and good luck will be yours for the rest of the month.
I have read that Franklin Delano Roosevelt compulsively started each month with a “rabbit” phrase. This custom, originally from the British Isles, persists in the USA, especially in New England. Some say you have to speak “rabbit”on arising, before any other word comes from your mouth. Some people feel it’s important to say “rabbit” once, some insist on twice, some are compelled to utter “rabbit” thrice. Some insist that the phrase is only effective if offered vertically, up a chimney.
If you have to say it over and over and over, are you a rabid rabbit ranter?
