Groundhog's Day February 2, 2009
Punxsutawney Phil (a groundhog), made his first official weather predication on February 2, 1887. Residents claim that Phil the Groundhog, has never been wrong!
"If the Groundhog sees his shadow, it means six more weeks of winter. If he does not see his shadow, it means spring is just around the corner."
Candlemas is the 40th day after Christmas. (More about Candlemas below!)
Since some of Groundhog's Day is based on a Scottish Couplet or saying, I thought you would enjoy a little "mood" music.
