If the winter blues have got you down-and-out, there is hope. Spring may be right around the corner. According to a USA Today article published on Feb. 1, a highly anticipated event is right around the corner. While millions of Americans will celebrate the big game on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014, is also Groundhog Day, an annual holiday that celebrates a legendary rodent known far-and-wide.
Every year on Feb. 2, a very famous, weather-predicting groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil emerges from his warm and comfy winter home at the crack of dawn from Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, PA., as the world looks on. While he holds no official degree, inquiring minds all across the land still want to know. Will Phil see his shadow or won't he? If it happens to be a sunny day and he spots his shadow, we are in for six more weeks of winter. But if the all-knowing groundhog doesn't see his shadow, spring is on the way!
