Today, February 2nd, is Groundhog Day! In North America the groundhog is said to wake from winter hibernation and crawl out of its burrow.

If the groundhog sees his shadow, he gets frightened and returns to his den for another six weeks, prolonging winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow, he emerges from his home and spring begins. The “official” groundhog is named Punxsutawney Phil. He lives at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
