May 2016. Rabbit, Rabbit!

Rabbit, Rabbit!
It's May Day! And, did everyone remember to say, "Rabbit, Rabbit," before getting out of bed this morning? I do this every month after hearing about how saying this phrase brings good fortune all month long. A seventh grade math teacher told our class this little tidbit and I figured anything I could do to bring more good luck my way would be great.

Artist Dotty Seiter sent me this just recently regarding how she ran across the "rabbit, rabbit," phrase.

I’m reading a novel by Lee Smith called Guests on Earth. Chapter 9 begins:

The first day of November dawned unseasonably warm and sunny. Somehow, the moment I woke up, I remembered to say “Rabbit, Rabbit” out loud, a superstitious practice taught to me by Mrs. Hodges years before, these words to be spoken first thing in the morning on the first day of each month to ensure good luck for all the days of the month ahead.

Thank you, Dotty, for forwarding this. 

 Have a great day and ask yourself what kinds of good things are coming your way.

Rabbits are from previous posts and are made of wet and needle felted wool with assorted beads.


  1. Great collection of rabbit-rabbits! May you enjoy many good things all month long!

    Still smiling at coming across that passage in Lee Smith's novel after our having discussed the rabbit-rabbit tradition/superstition recently : )

    1. Yes, I love that you sent me that bit from the novel you were reading. I had not heard of it anywhere else! Thank you for that fun, little surprise!

  2. I am doomed. I did not remember. And I don't even have a Rabbit's foot or a gold coin on a red ribbon. LOL

  3. Love these so much it makes my "hare" stand on end!
    So sweet.

  4. Hahahah!
    Thank you, Laurie. Hope you are enjoying your new pup! He's gorgeous.
