WILL HE SEE HIS SHADOW TODAY?

groundhogcracker

The celebration of Groundhog Day had its origins from ancient European weather
lore. The early American reference to the custom can be found in a diary entry,
dated February 4, 1841, made by a Berks County, Pennsylvania storekeeper
James Morris. It was celebrated for the first time at Gobbler’s Knob in  the
city of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Traditionally, if a groundhog comes out 
of his hole and sees its shadow, that means there will be six more weeks of
winter weather, no shadow means an early spring.
