Nan's Rabbitings

Home White Rabbits Planaria?

My grandmother (beginning, in my memory) in 1953 would prop a note in front of the clock, so I'd see it and say 'Rabbit, Rabbit' first thing on the 1st. Our father would pass by our bedroom door during the night and say 'Rabbit, Rabbit', until the girls mumbled in response... It's just what my family 'DOES' and has been doing for ages!

My family (both sides) were native Virginians, center of the state. The only time 'Rabbit, Rabbit' caused confusion was NY's Eve(s) when inevitably heads whipped around to see which drunks were not yelling 'Happy New Year", but 'Rabbit! Rabbit!' instead! :-)
