Groundhog Day – February 2
Groundhog Day is celebrated in the United States and Canada on February 2nd of each year. As we are all aware, Groundhog Day is a day of wonder and curiosity for many people based on the activities of a groundhog arising out of its winter slumber to check for his shadow.
In the United States, the most important groundhog is Punxsutawney Phil who lives in a burrow called Gobbler’s Knob near Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. In Canada, an albino groundhog named Wiarton Willie annually climbs out of his hole to predict the future forecast.
