Rabbit rabbit!

A million years ago, I knew someone who would always say "rabbit rabbit!" on the first day of the month. According to her, doing this would get her good luck for the rest of the month if she said it to you before you said it to her. Anybody know where this bit of lore comes from? Anybody else every heard it? Ever said it to everyone you meet on the 1st day of the month?

Funny things we do.... Can I just wish good luck to everyone, every day?

And would saying "knit knit" mean we get happy knitting all month?

Oh, I like the "knit, knit" idea -- and let's add "spin, spin" to it! Sorry, never heard of the "rabbit rabbit."

It comes from southern England-- Wiltshire area, and such-- and it has to be the very first thing you say out loud on the first day of the month.

The response is "Hares, hares" in case you were wondering!
