The word is in: Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his den today up at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and saw his shadow, which means the groundhog crawled back into his den and that forecasts six more weeks of winter weather. If you don't live in Pennsylvania, your groundhog may vary.
We here at Neatorama have a soft spot for silly holidays, including Groundhog Day, so much that I learned how to spell Punxsutawney without copying. We also like the movie named after the tradition. Stacy wrote about it in 2009 in Movie Trivia: Groundhog Day.
Later that year, the question arose as to How Long Does Bill Murray Spend in Groundhog Day? It generated a lot of speculation, and later we had the answer in Harold Ramis Responds on Groundhog Day.
This year, Eddie Deezen took a closer look at the movie in Why Did Bill Murray Keep Going Back in Groundhog Day?
So enjoy the movie (it's on CMT tonight), enjoy your Groundhog carols and your Groundhog cake, and have a happy Groundhog Day!
