ground hog day 2011

ground hog day 2011

Ground Hog Day 2011 takes place tomorrow on February 2nd and the most well known of all groundhogs, Punxsutawney Phil will be making his yearly showing at the start of the day, around 7:25am. His fame is partly because he is Pennsylvanian and the first people who celebrated Ground Hog Day were the Germans of Pennsylvania.

Each year, massive crowds gather in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to watch Phil emerge from his burrow on Gobbler’s Knob. February 2nd occurs halfway between the first day of winter and the first day of spring. According to popular tradition and belief, if the groundhog sees his shadow there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If the day is cloudy and he doesn’t see his shadow, then the groundhog stays above the ground anticipating early spring weather.

So a fun day for all who have an affection for the creature and it will take place tomorrow.
