Rabbit, Rabbit

December 1, 2007 § 4 Comments

SNOW. Snow on the first of December— and it’s serious, long-term snow. And it brought its friend the clever North wind that finds all of the gaps between your buttons and your mittens’ stitches.

Perhaps a Real Canadian Winter is in store. Good thing I’ve got my snowshoes.

    As I just told Richard, December’s starting off with a frosty bang! 20-30 cms of snow expected here in the Valley tomorrow night into Tuesday morning. I hope it’s not a precursor of what’s to come, but I guess we’re due for a “real winter”. 🙂

    Your subject line rang a bell for me. I remember saying it as a kid, but I can’t recall what it was about. Can you explain, please?

    Nancy— (9 days late) I’m very surprised by how much snow we have in Lunenburg. It’s less than 2 inches, but still. It’s snow! In December! In view of the sea! I’m glad for La Niña, even if she is just another symptom of global warming.

    Tena— Rabbit, rabbit is a talisman for good luck. They must be the first words out of your mouth on the first day of a new month, but I usually forget, or I stay up past midnight on the 30th or bollocks in some other way, so I try to make it the first thing I say here every month.

    Wikipedia says you can say “Bittar, bittar” at the end of the month to avoid bad luck, instead. 🙂

    Thanks! Now I remember.
