Hoppy New Year !

Yes . . .  a little cheesy I know, but the sentiment is nonetheless sincere!
We wish for you a year of  health and happiness!
I thought I'd share a little "rabbit habit" that you might find interesting!

"Rabbit rabbit rabbit" is one variant of a common British superstition which states that a person should say or repeat the word "rabbit", or say the phrase "white rabbits", or some combination of these elements, out loud upon waking (or the first moment) on the first day of the month, because doing so will ensure good luck for the duration of that month. Today, it is a frequent tradition in many English speaking countries."
"In the United States the tradition is common in New England, in particular Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont, although, like all folklore, determining its exact area of distribution is difficult. The superstition may be related to the broader belief in the rabbit or hare being a "lucky" animal as exhibited in the practice of carrying a rabbit's foot for luck"
(from wikipedia)

While I don't condone the rabbit's foot thing ~ Horrors!
There's no harm in uttering on of my favorite words at the beginning of each month 
to entice a little luck!

Rabbit ... Rabbit ... Rabbit !  
A Hoppy New Year to you and yours!
