Did you know????
Groundhog Day occurs every February 2nd.
According to legend: “It is the day that the Groundhog comes out of his hole after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow.”
- If the day is sunny: and he sees his shadow, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather (Long Winter) and returns to his hole.
- If the day is cloudy; and he therefore cannot see his own shadow, he takes it as an omen of Spring arriving soon (Short Winter) and stays above ground.
