It's a new month... "Rabbit, rabbit!"

1 - Saying the words "rabbit, rabbit" first thing upon waking on the first day of the month is supposed to bring good luck for the remainder of the month. No one knows the origin of the superstition, but it could date back as far as the 13th century. Why say, "rabbit" instead of "luck," or "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?" According to Wikipedia, a rabbit “is jumping into the future and moving ahead with life and happiness.”
