Rabbit Rabbit:

Are you superstitious? 
Is there anything you do to bring you 'luck'?
Well my husband is probably the most superstitious person I have ever met...


He has countless of things he does or doesn't do because of superstitions, but one of the big ones is on the first day of every month the very first words out of his mouth before he will say anything else is: 

"Rabbit Rabbit"

I of course think it is the funniest thing and every morning on the 1st he will look at me and say Rabbit Rabbit until I finally say it too.   
So I guess you could say it is now a "family tradition"?

Steven doesn't remember exactly when he started saying "Rabbit Rabbit". A quick google search reveals that Nickelodeon used to show commercials on the last day of the month during the early 90's to remind people to say rabbit rabbit for good luck.  So he most likely got it watching commercials during  Hey Dude and Salute Your Shorts and being from an Irish family once he shared his knowledge of a new superstition it was most likely encouraged.

Further research of the "Rabbit Rabbit" superstition goes back to the early 1900s when it was popularized and there is research dating the luck of rabbits back over 2,000 years ago. Even famous figures have lived by the Rabbit Rabbit superstition such as Franklin D. Roosevelt!

Although I don't believe in superstitions I do believe in the power of positive thought. Perhaps if you truly believe that you will have good luck you will create your own good luck and vice versa if you think you will have bad luck.    

Back in June Steven forgot to say "Rabbit Rabbit" and he was devastated.... I told him not to worry about it and everything was going to be fine... Well, I was wrong... Within a week Steven had his cornea torn open in a freak accident, I was put on bed rest, was sicker than ever, someone backed into his car in a parking lot, and we had several unexpected bills and expenses come up...

July 1st approached and Steven and I both said "Rabbit Rabbit" first thing in the morning before we said any other word and we have had amazing luck all month...
Is he making me a believer? 
I don't know.
But what I do know, is that it makes him happy when I say it and like I said above, we did have a pretty great July! 

So what will you decide to do as the morning sun awakes you... 
Will you too say "Rabbit Rabbit"?
It never hurts to try, especially if it could possibly bring you a little luck for the month!
