Thread Name: Folklore: Good Luck for the New Year
Subject: RE: Folklore: Good Luck for the New Year
I always heard about eating black eyed peas and cornbread on New Year's day for good luck.
Somety years ago, my Music History professor told us that if you want good luck for the year, you must say, "Rabbit rabbit" to the first person you meet--and do it before they can say anything to you. Years back, I used to call a friend from Music school on New Year's Day (if she didn't call me first) & tell her "rabbit rabbit!" Try it & let me know if it still works.
