Feb. 2nd – Groundhog Day
Groundhog Day is observed on February 2nd, each year in the United States and Canada. For a nice welcomed break during the winter, on this day the groundhog awakens from his nap and goes outside to see if he can see his shadow.
A groundhog emerges from his burrow and looks around. Either it’s sunny and he sees his shadow, which, in folklore, means six more weeks of winter, or it’s cloudy and no shadow can be spied, which equals an early spring.
