Rabbit rabbit From Wikipedia

"Rabbit rabbit" is a common British superstition. The most common modern version states that a person should 
say "rabbit, rabbit, white rabbit", "rabbit, rabbit, rabbit", "rabbits, rabbits, rabbits","rabbit, rabbit" or simply "white 
rabbits" upon waking on the first day of each new month, and on doing so will receive good luck for the duration of 
that month. In the United States, the tradition is especially common in NantucketCape Cod
other towns within Massachusetts, and throughout Vermont, notably in Middlebury and Chester.
