Pinch Punch, First of the Month

Posted in Special Occasions

British Traditions and Superstitions

The Rules:

• It has to be the first day of the month after dawn and before midday.

• The person(s) have to be awake.

• You can't Pinch! Punch! the person whose already Pinched! Punched! you.

So with this in mind you pick your victim, home in and strike with a not too painful but noticeable pinch and a punch some where on their body whilst triumphantly whooping:

"PINCH! PUNCH!!! FIRST OF THE MONTH!!!!!"

"Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit" is one variant of a common British superstition which states that a person should say or repeat the word "rabbit" or "rabbits", or say the phrase "white rabbits", or some combination of these elements, out loud upon waking on the first day of the month, because doing so will ensure good luck for the duration of that month!
