Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day is a popular tradition celebrated in Canada and the United States on February 2nd. It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerging from its burrow on this day sees its shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks, and if it does not see its shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early.

Why Groundhogs Supposedly Predict The Weather On Groundhog Day

Quote by Phil Connors (Bill Murray)

There is no way that this winter is ever going to end as long as this
groundhog keeps seeing his shadow. I don't see any other way out. He's got
to be stopped. And I have to stop him.

-- Phil Connors (Bill Murray)
