Groundhog Day: Get in on the Fun

SPM Wire — It may not be scientifically accurate, but Groundhog Day is one of the most famous weathercasting traditions.

Celebrated yearly on Feb. 2, the holiday stems from folkloric tradition, whereby communities gather to see whether the groundhog will see his shadow.

The results are said to indicate whether we will have an early spring.

This year, as always, locals in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania lay claim to being Groundhog Day headquarters for the country as they celebrate the 130th anniversary of their traditional event with art, music, food, fun and dancing.

Americans across the country can find similar gatherings in their communities.
