Odd, I always thought of the tradition of saying “White rabbits!”, on the first of each month as a family peculiarity, but apparently its part of a larger social phenomena, “Rabbit, rabbit”.

People talking about “rabbit rabbit”

In our family the first person to say it in a given household was owed a small present or some other kindness. Living on the East coast allowed me to both be part of 2 households, and get the jump on my West coast family before they were fully awake.

I think I prefer “White rabbits”, to “Rabbit Rabbits”, but thats probably just a matter of familiarity.

Got to run, I’m supposed to be working at Shakespeare Santa Cruz in an hour, and I need a new pair of black pants.
