Kaleea Folklore: Rabbit, Rabbit! did you say it yet? (26) Folklore: Rabbit, Rabbit! did you say it yet? 01 Jan 07

My old Music History Prof told us that one should say "Rabbit Rabbit" on New Year's Day to the first person you meet, so that you would have good luck throughout the year. Does anyone know the origins of this, &/or if it has anything to Music? The Prof alluded that it had something to do with Music, but never told us if or how.
He was a wealth of information about all things everywhere, but when asked questions about "Rabbit Rabbit," he merely told us that we'd get extra credit if we found out. (He was famous for extra credit given for extraordinary things, & even gave extra points on exams for humor!) That was many years ago, & nobody ever got the extra credit.
Recently, a British pal I spoke with said he'd been saying this on New Year's Day all of his life, but had no idea where it came from. Anybody know?
