What is Groundhog Day?
It comes from a United States Pennsylvania Dutch superstition dating back to the 1800s. On February 2nd every year the groundhog comes up out of his burrow to see his shadow on a clear day. If he sees his shadow, the belief is that the groundhog will then retreat into his den for another six weeks of winter. If it is cloudy and he does not see his shadow, that means that Spring will arrive early.

The legend of the groundhog day is that on February 2nd, Phil the groundhog comes out of the ground and is either greeted by the bright sunshine or a cloudy day. The bright sunshine causes him to see his shadow, get scared and head back into his hole for another six weeks. If its cloudy, then it means that Spring will be early that year.
