White rabbits!

Remembering times past this exclamation heard regularly on the first day of the month. 
No idea why, nor the other exclamation 'and black kittens!'

February also came with the rhyme
February fill-dyke, fill dykes black or white!

The latter being an old weather saying, meaning that the land would be rained on or covered in in snow regularly throughout the month.
