Punxsutawney Phil The Groundhog


Punxsutawney Phil cart attribute his longevity to drinking the “elixir of life.” Alas, they are not coming up with the recipe. But if you want to try to follow his diet, here is some recipes vegetarian family.

The whole world is sitting on the edge of our seats awaiting the answer of the annual question “Did Punxsutawney Phil See his shadow?” We’ll all have to wait one more day to find out the answer to that timeless question when Phil takes his annual stroll with dozens of cameras following his every move.

Why do we care of the groundhog sees his shadow?

Apparently if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow and scampers back into his hold we’re in for another six weeks of winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow and instead relishes his time in the sun, Winter is finished. Hmmmm….. I think the four feet of snow outside the door is a pretty good hint that winter is not quite done yet, but that’s just me.

More often than not Phil gets dragged out of his warm and comfy chamber only to be held up in front of a crowd of people only to run (not walk) back into his hole. I mean what would you do if you were taken out of bed without the chance to primp and given a worldwide photo op? I’d be back in the hole too!

So far Punxsutawney Phil has been on hand to predict the end of winter 114 times dating all the way back to 1887. The bad news, he’s only been right 39% of the time! You’re probably get a better idea of whether winter is about to end by taking a look out the window. Of course, the fun of Groundhog Day is playing the odds and hoping that Punxsutawney Phil predicts an early Spring! He has to be right some of the time.

Groundhog Day 2011

Groundhog Day 2011 is on Wednesday and you don’t have to turn on the news to find out just how close–or far away–spring is.

we all want winter to be over! But, if the groundhog sees his shadow on February 2nd, we’re in for two more weeks of winter.

By the way, Groundhog Day is always on February 2nd. The largest Groundhog Day celebration is held in Punxsutawney, PA. Though I grew up in PA and always knew about Groundhog Day, the holiday seemed to gain more recognition after the 1993 movie came out.

Have you seen it? Bill Murray was hilarious in Groundhog Day.
