You can see my discussion of the basis and meaning of it here: http://parsha.blogspot.com/2007/01/explaining-my-flippancy-yesterday-about.html

It is a segulah from R' Mendel Mi-Rimanov, though it is sourced (in different form) as early as Rav Amram Gaon, and even earlier, in the Yerushalmi. But one does not have to leap on to every segulah, as it becomes the latest fad and spreads virally via email.
