Rabbit! Rabbit!

Rib Relays and good luck

Rabbit! Rabbit!

Ever heard the Rabbit! Rabbit!  superstition? The RIB Relays team has heard a few versions, but the general idea is that the first thing you say on the first day of the month should be Rabbit! Rabbit! And you’ll be rewarded with good luck for the whole month.

Silly, we know. But hey, it’s a new month and a new year, and who can’t use a little good luck? So we’re giving “Rabbit! Rabbit!” a try. We’re also going to be  crossing our fingers, knocking on wood, avoiding cracks in the sidewalk, throwing salt over our left shoulders, and eating twelve grapes as our clocks strike twelve.

Thank you so much for buying RIBU1C relays and other Functional Devices products from, working with us, and reading our blog.  We’ll see you back here soon for an amazing 2013!  

Happy New Year!
