  • An expression I've heard uttered to greet the first morning of a new month. I've no idea why.

  • Round these parts, you're supposed to say 'rabbit, rabbit'. If you remember to say it before eating your first morsel of the new month, it will bring you good luck for the entire month.

  • I was taught it was necessary to say 'white rabbits' to greet the month before saying anything to anyone on that morning to get good luck. I think I read that somewhere the superstition includes a need to say 'jack rabbits' the previous evening too, but unfortunately I don't have any books on folklore to hand, so I can't guarantee the correctness of that.
