Groundhog’s day

Groundhogs day

Every year on February 2nd in Punxsutawney Pennsylvania, they host a legendary event known as Groundhogs Day. What happens on Groundhogs’ Day? A legendary groundhog know as Punxsutawney Phil comes up from hibernation and people flock to see if he saw his shadow or not. If he sees his shadow, it means six more weeks of winter, if no shadow appears, it means an early spring. As of February 2nd, 2024, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow meaning spring is just a few weeks away!


Happy Groundhog’s Day Lancers!
