A Lapine Luck Conundrum.

I gather most western cultures have a different version of the ‘rabbits’ theme for the first day of the month. Where I grew up it was required to say out loud ‘white rabbits, white rabbits, white rabbits’ before uttering anything else if you wanted to have good luck for the rest of the month.

But nobody ever told me what the rule is if you stay up after midnight. Are the auspicious words to be uttered as soon as the clock strikes twelve, or should you wait until you wake up the next morning? And if you try to play it safe and do both, does one negate the other? This could explain a lot.
