White Rabbit in Mauve Room says "A pinch and a punch"
Then the White Rabbit gives me a PINCH and a PUNCH…
“Hey! What was THAT for?” I ask, aggrieved.
“English custom,” answers the White Rabbit. “First of the month, English people say, ‘Pinch, punch, first of the month, no returns.’ You’ve got to be quick.”
This is a rabbit that is crossing its creeds. If we don’t get this rabbit back on track his religion might morph into something unrecognizable.
So here are two superstitions for starting a new month.
(1) White Rabbit brings luck. (2) Pinch and a punch guards against attacks by witches.
But it's a new twist to two old tales when a white rabbit says “A pinch and a punch.” And in a Mauve Room.
