02 February

Groundhog Day is a quirky and fun tradition. Here are some interesting facts about Groundhog Day:

  1. Punxsutawney Phil:
    • Punxsutawney Phil is the most famous groundhog and the “official” predictor of Groundhog Day in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
    • Legend has it that if Phil sees his shadow on February 2nd, there will be six more weeks of winter.
  2. Origins:
