My friend Sheri suggested that I write to you to tell you how I first heard about the "Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit" (sometimes "White rabbit") exclamation to be uttered on the first of the month to guarantee good luck.
We have a friend from the U.K. who stayed with us this summer, and she relayed the tale. She grew up in Northern England (Staithes) and said the legend was one she had known from childhood. She also indicated that there was a children's book that recounted the tale which she read to her own children. (Probably in the 1960s or 1970s.) I'd love to find that book, if you ever come across it!
I've only begun to explore your site, but it is intriguing.
