The Groundhog Day Muse

groundhog, groundhog day

Today the largest Groundhog Day celebration is held in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Many cities around the country also have their own groundhog day celebration. According to folklore, if a groundhog emerging from its burrow on this day sees its shadow, that signifies winter will continue for 6 more weeks. If the groundhog does not see its shadow, that indicates winter will soon end.

Still, regardless of whether or not Punxsutawney Phil Sowerby predicts we will have 6 more weeks of winter, we adjust accordingly and life goes on. We won’t get bent out of shape regardless of the outcome, and we keep on living! Right?

Happy Groundhog Day!
