Saying “white rabbits” on the first day of each month apparently brings you luck, at least that’s what I was told as a child. I have no idea why – it’s just a superstition. Any suggestions why white rabbits might be lucky? Do you do or say any other things on the first of each month to bring to luck?
Today is May Day and a bank holiday in the UK. Traditional activities on this day include Morris dancing, a form of folk dancing that dates back to at least 1448 and that is praticed mainly in England. It involves a bunch of blokes in unusual costumes dancing around, waving handkerchiefs and attacking each other with sticks.
