Rabbit Rabbit February 1st!

rabbitrabbitfeb1

Well for those of you familiar with my blog, you knew what post I would be delivering today, right?  Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!

I like traditions, but I also like spontaneity.  I woke up this morning to a text from a dear friend reminding me Rabbit Rabbit!  It put a huge smile on my face to begin my day!  Isn’t that what friendship, traditions and life is all about?  Thank you ML!

We’re very chilly here and I’m snuggled up like a baby bunny in a blanket!  I hope that you are warm, healthy and happy wherever you are!  Take a moment to remember Rabbit Rabbit – it will put a smile on your face and who knows?  Maybe it will bring you extra luck this month!  We could all use that, couldn’t we?

Keep your heartlights shining!

Shine On!

Bugs-Bunny-4

Thank you Merrie Melodies and Warner Brothers for all the giggles and laughs we had along with Bugs Bunny.   I thought on our special Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit day that you’d enjoy a smile along with Bugs and me!

Do you want to go down memory lane with me?  Here’s Bugs’ first appearance!

Here’s to hopping you have a wonderful day! (pun intended)

The Popular Rabbit, Rabbit!

I have a bunch of popular posts which I could have never imagined would be the ones that are clicked on most in my stats.  Seemingly innocuous posts are the ones which get the most traffic.  Does that happen to you?

Examples:  My grasshopper one – you may remember, I found a grasshopper in the house.  Or the one about the owl who kept me up at night?  That’s another popular one according to the stats page.  Seeing a shooting star comes up a lot too.  The angelic ones do tend to bring traffic to my site as well.

I think it’s interesting what brings people to our blog posts.  I know that for me, I have been following many of you for years and it feels as if we are friends, even though we’ve never met.  Perhaps that’s the empathetic soul speaking now, but when you blog about something sad or meaningful that has changed your life, I’m there.  When I say I’m keeping you in my prayers, I am.  And frankly, I feel that when you write those things too, you are truthful as well.

Surely this probably won’t be a post you would click on, but I saw the Popular – The Daily Post  prompt and just wanted to write today.

Before I forget, it’s the first of October!  You know what to do, right?

Say Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit!

May October be a beautiful month for you!

Shine On!

Rabbit, Rabbit…

Rabbit, Rabbit…White Rabbit, White Rabbit…

It’s been a long few days since my knee surgery.  Today is the first day that I’ve even remotely felt like venturing to write a post, but I thought it’s the perfect time to bring up a tradition that we’ve been doing for years.   Today is September 1st and on the first of every month, we say, “Rabbit, rabbit, white rabbit, white rabbit,” in the morning before breakfast (although it’s a loose rule because years ago when my son was 5, he cried because he forgot to say it before he ate and was convinced he would have a bad month)  So, being the good Mom, I amended the rule quickly before the tears really began rolling.  In fact, as my sons have grown, they’ve twisted the rabbit, rabbit to monkey, monkey ~ in a show of independence and yet caring for dear ol’ Mom.  Not quite rebelling as such, but doing it their way.  I don’t mind, I think it’s funny because they get such a kick out of saying it to me.

Do any of you know of this tradition?  I can’t tell you where it began for me or how…I just know that the start of the new month has me declaring that phrase before savoring my first sip of my coffee in the early morning and brings me a smile knowing that I’ve begun my month with luck!

I started looking up the phrase ‘Rabbit, rabbit” and a plethora of websites and theories abounded.  Some stated that the tradition started in the 1880s, some stated that there are conditions upon saying the phrase to another person, some even have a slight variation on the way it’s said (hare in the morning, rabbit at night).  It’s an interesting take on a cute family tradition that I never thought much about….until now.

One piqued my interest:

“There is a tradition in the military (at least in the USAF) involving white rabbit. It is a game, as well as a way to keep in touch with those with whom you were stationed. When a new month begins, it is a contest as to who can tell the other person ‘white rabbit’ first; must be live communication, no answering machines, letters, etc. Usually the wager would be a drink. However, like I said, it allowed you an ‘excuse’ to call people once a month and catch up.”

So, in the military tradition, I send you Rabbit, Rabbit first…

Now let’s go get a Mimosa to start off our month with luck!

For me, it’ll be lucky because you’re buying!

Have you said it this morning?

Rabbit, Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit

to YOU!
