Rabbit!

Rabbit! When I was a kid growing up in Connecticut I would listen to the radio in the morning while getting ready for school. My mother liked to listen to Ron Rohmer in the morning on WELI out of New Haven. One day Mr. Rohmer told us “If you say ‘Rabbit’ the first thing when you wake up in the morning on the first of each month you will have good luck all month.” I have always remembered that and still try to say rabbit before anything else on the first day of every month. The tricky one is January because you have to remember to say it before you say Happy New Year!

I recently found out that this is a variation of a common British superstition that a person should say or repeat the word “rabbit” or “rabbits”, or say the phrase “white rabbits”, or some combination of these elements, out loud upon waking on the first day of the month, because doing so will ensure good luck for the duration of that month.

Just thought I’d share that with you tonight.

Today is the start of another Ultimate Blog Challenge and since I’ve been slacking off a bit I decided to join it. I have been taking lots of pictures lately but I haven’t posted them – I really don’t know why. Hope you like them.
