THE RABBIT RABBIT RABBIT SUPERSTITION
Saying “rabbit” three times out loud on the first day of the month is a popular old superstition.
It’s supposed to bring good luck to you for the rest of month!
Reportedly, even President Franklin Roosevelt made sure to utter the triple words every month without fail.
Why RABBIT RABBIT RABBIT?
Rabbits have been considered a symbol of good fortune for over 2,000 years.
And the number three is closely associated with good luck and blessings.
In 1909, a story was published in an English magazine about a group of children who had made a game of reciting the words at the start of every month.
Readers found the story charming, and soon began to perform the ritual as well.
It has remained one of those folky and fun superstitions that is still familiar to many people today.
In fact, the actress Sarah Jessica Parker frequently posts RABBIT RABBIT RABBIT on her Instagram account on the first of the month.
Want to try it out for yourself?
It’s easy to do, it doesn’t take much time- and it's fun!
Immediately when you wake up on the first day of the month, before you say another word to anybody else....anybody, you must say "rabbit, rabbit, rabbit."
That's all there is to it!
If you forgot to say "rabbit, rabbit, rabbit" on the first of the month, but you still want to give it a try, some say this also works:
You can say "tibbar, tibbar, tibbar" ("rabbit rabbit rabbit" spelled backwards) and still make the magic happen.
If you try it out, let us know what happens!
