Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day 2019

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow Saturday morning meaning an early spring is on the way despite dangerously cold temperatures in the United States this week.

Groundhog Day, February 2nd, is a popular tradition in the United States.

It is the day that the Groundhog comes out of his hole after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow.

If he sees it, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his hole.

If the day is cloudy and, hence, shadowless, he takes it as a sign of spring and stays above ground.
