Transcript of Groundhog Day
By: Kevin Vickers
Groundhog Day started as a tradition in Europe. On February 2nd of each year, the day that is exactly in the middle of winter, a hedgehog would wake up from hibernation.
If the sun was shining on that day, the hedgehog would see its shadow and return into hibernation. This meant that there would be six more weeks of winter. If the sky is cloudy, the hedgehog would not see his shadow. This means that spring is near.
When Europeans came to America, there were no hedgehogs to be found. They decided to watch a similar hibernating animal, the groundhog.
Today, large festivals are held all over the country to watch for the groundhog coming out of its burrow or home.
