Groundhog Day is one of the most well-known and widely celebrated days of the year, held on February 2nd. On this day, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly wait to see if the namesake animal predicts the early arrival of spring or if we're in for an additional six weeks of winter weather. Should the groundhog come out of his burrow during the sunrise and see his shadow, it means winter will be sticking around a little while longer. If the groundhog does not see his shadow, say hello to spring!
Groundhog Day is a tradition brought over by German immigrants in the 1800s. Originating in the town of Punxsutawney, Philadelphia and still held there to this day, the “unburrowing” portion was originally meant as a means for people to come together, socialize and enjoy a meal together. In fact, there wasn't even a groundhog involved in the original custom. Instead, bears and badgers were used to predict the weather as both of these animals are known to hibernate and wake up once the days become longer.
