Hurray! It’s Groundhog Day!
Hey there readers,
Did you know that February 2nd is Groundhog Day?
They say that on this day if a groundhog doesn’t see his shadow, it will be an early spring. If he does see his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter! This tradition goes back all the way to the year 1841, where groundhogs, badgers, and even bears were used to figure out the coming weather.
Groundhogs aren’t the only animals to help people predict the weather. Frogs will croak louder if a storm is coming and ants will build up their mounds to stop rushing rainwater. So cool!
Do you hope the groundhog will see his shadow for 6 more weeks of winter or are you wishing for spring?
Have a fantastic weekend!
