According to legend, if Punxsutawney Phil (a very special groundhog) sees his shadow on Groundhog Day, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.
I sure hope that he does not see his shadow this year. There has been much too much snow and cold winter weather for so many to endure. I am posting this early so that at least I can hope for everyone before the official word from Punxsutawney Phil is announced.
If you are looking for some great entertainment, check out this very cool video of last year's Groundhog Day ceremony at Gobbler's Knob, Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. I have already watched it three times! Groundhog day was always a big thing in school when I was little. It is barely mentioned here in Hawaii.
This video clip reminds me so much of the movie, Groundhog Day. I highly recommend this movie if you haven't seen it yet. It is a movie I could watch over and over again.
It's Groundhog Day!!
