Groundhog Gives Good News For Winter Sufferers

Punxsutawney Phil left vs. Staten Island Chuck right

Other places have begun using their own groundhog to celebrate the holiday, including General Beauregard Lee of Atlanta, Dunkirk Dave of Dunkirk, New York, and Jimmy of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.

The day derives from an old Germanic tale that each year a groundhog will poke its head up out of its den. Phil's handlers said that the groundhog has forecast an early spring.

A proclamation will be read aloud that determines if Phil has seen his shadow (meaning six more weeks of winter) or hasn't, which purportedly means an early spring. The groundhog will leave his burrow at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania on February 2 for the annual Groundhog Day ceremony.

It's celebrated across North America, but in Punxsutawney they have a much more specific tradition.

Members of The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, known as the "inner circle", do not recognise Buckeye Chuck's predictions.

In Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son you'll play as the charming but arrogant Phil Connors Jr., who grew up in the shadow of his father-a man who spent a lifetime repeating a single day until he had made it flawless. The entire ceremony will be broadcast live online at VisitPA.com, so head over there to watch Punxsutawney Phil do his thing!
