Quick Say: Rabbit, Rabbit!

Two Rabbits / Zwei Kaninchen

Rabbit! Rabbit!

It’s the end of the month and you know what that means… It’s time to prepare for the first of the month and all that can be yours by simple saying  “rabbit, rabbit!”

The first words out of your mouth on the first day of the month must be “rabbit, rabbit”. This is doubly important if your birthday occurs that month. “Rabbit, rabbit” will ensure good luck. And who couldn’t use a little good luck these days?

Origins and history

The exact origin of the superstition is certainly unknown, though it has appeared in print at least as early as 1420 in England, where it is most commonly said to have originated, though some reports place its origins even earlier, into the 1200s. Today it has spread to most of the English-speaking countries of the world, although like all folklore, determining its exact area of distribution is difficult. The superstition is related to the broader belief in the rabbit or hare being a “lucky” animal, as exhibited in the practice of carrying a rabbit’s foot for luck.

  3. It is especially lucky for the rabbit it you leave all of his feet intact instead of cutting them off and putting them on your keychain……

  4. A rabbit is usually by my front steps when I go out to get the newspaper in the morning and it always scares me when it runs. I’ll try to clean up my language and say Rabbit Rabbit instead of what I usually say.

  5. Okay then, here is my take on that, Hare Rabbit, Hare Rabbit. Now I have it covered no matter how you look at it! “giggle, giggle”. 😆

  8. In grad school we had rabbits who lived in a burrow by a big hemlock tree outside the Nursing building. Our professors always knew when it was time for a break, because we’d start watching the rabbits instead of taking notes. Now I teach there, and rabbits still live under that hemlock 20 years later!
