It is based on a belief that on this day (February 2) the groundhog, or woodchuck, comes out of hole after winter hibernation to look for its shadow. If the shadow is seen, it's a sunny day. And the groundhog foretells 'six more weeks of bad weather' and thus a lingering winter. But spring is coming if no shadow is seen because of clouds. The groundhog then behaves accordingly. It goes back into the hole if the weather turns bad, but stays above ground if spring is near.

Groundhog Day

Transcript: This tradition is similar and different to the lottery. The lottery has a good connotation, but has a bad ending, unlike Groundhog's Day, when it has a good connotation and has a good ending-most of the time. The Lottery had to deal with a fair draw, and fate. Groundhog's Day is different. Groundhog Day By: rianna tremper and noah messer Punxsutawney Phil (Phil for short) comes out of his borrow at Gobbler's Knob, and if he sees his shadow, then we have another 6 weeks of winter. But if he doesn't see his shadow, then we have an early spring.

How is the tradition similar/different? The Inner Circle is responsible for carrying on the tradition, and for taking care and feeding Phil. These people are the people often seen in suits and ties and a black top hat. "Groundhog Day." N.p., n.d. Web. "Groundhog Day in United States." <i>Groundhog Day in United States</i>. N.p., n.d.

Transcript: Groundhog Day What is a Groundhog? What is "Groundhog Day"? Folklore Punxsutawney Phil Gobbler's Knob The Inner Circle Groundhog Day Traditions Groundhog Day 2010 How accurate is Phil? Fun Facts About Groundhog Day Woodstock Willie Organizers of the Groundhog Day event in Woodstock have yet to determine if their winter weather prognosticator, Woodstock Willie, will make an appearance on Wednesday, or if the massive winter storm forecast for the next couple days will keep the rodent, and visitors, at home. Jo Williams, a Groundhog's Day committee member, said organizers would provide an update before 5 p.m. today. However, the details of that update are as yet unknown. Williams said committee members would discuss if the event will proceed or if it will be canceled due to inclement weather. Should Woodstock Willie come out of his box and determine how many more weeks of winter remain, the event scheduled for 7:07 a.m. Wednesday on the Woodstock Square, will be the town's 17th since the movie, “Groundhog Day,” was filmed there. Obnoxious Groundhog Video Phils Burrow Stump 3:00 a.m. Crowds of up to 30,000 people gather at Gobbler's Knob Groundhogs live to be about 7 years old. But according to his handlers, Phil has been making his preditions since 1886. That would make Phil 135 years old. Every summer at the Groundhog Picnic, Phil is given a sip of “groundhog punch” (a secret recipe) which gives him seven more years of life. 6:30 a.m. Fireworks begin 9 out of 10 times (90%), Phil has NOT seen his shadow and predicted another 6 weeks of winter. According to folklore, if it is sunny when a groundhog comes out of its burrow on February 2nd, he will be startled to "see his shadow" and winter will continue for six more weeks. If he does not see his shadow, then spring will come early. Shadow = 6 more weeks of winter Phil tells President Bill and VP Mike his prediction So the story goes, Punxsutawney Phil was named after King Phillip. Prior to being called Phil, he was called Br’er Groundhog. On Groundhog Day, February 2 he is taken to Gobbler's Knob and placed in a heated burrow underneath an artificial tree stump on stage before being pulled out at 7:25 am , to make his prediction. Groundhogese Language Translator A select group, called the Inner Circle, takes care of Phil year-round. Members of the Inner Circle are wear top hats and tuxedos. Phil currently has two co-handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths. The town name "Punxsutawney" comes from the Indian name for the location "ponksad-uteney" which means the "town of the sandflies." 7:25 a.m. Phil's handlers pull him out from his tree stump Another name for groundhogs is "woodchuck" or "ground beaver" Of these 114 predictions on record so far, Phil's predictions have been correct just 39% of the time. Groundhog Day is a holiday celebrated on February 2 in the United States and Canada. The first official Groundhog Day was celebrated on February 2, 1886 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania In Alaska, February 2 is observed as Marmot Day rather than Groundhog Day because few groundhogs exist in the state. Marmot Day was created in 2009 and signed by then-Governor Sarah Palin. The Official Groundhog Day Website Punxsutawney Phil is a groundhog who lives in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, USA. He is the "official" weather forecaster for Groundhog Day. For most of the year, Phil lives at the Punxsutawney Library with his wife, Phillis.
