Hey everyone, it's Groundhog Day! Hey everyone, it's Groundhog Day! Hey everyone, it's Groundhog Day!

How exciting! How exciting! How exciting!

Hey everyone, it's Groundhog Day! Hey everyone, it's Groundhog Day! Hey everyone, it's Groundhog Day!

Did you know that Groundhog Day is an actual thing? Like, it’s not just a film, it’s a real day? And it’s today?

Yep, today, mate. But what happens on this very day, every year? Well, the tradition states that if a groundhog emerges from his little hovel, the dirty rat, and notices a shadow because there’s clear weather then he’ll go back inside and winter will carry on for six more weeks. However, if he sees a bit of cloudiness, then spring will arrive early, and everyone can take their tops off.

The celebration (what a celebration) started officially way back in around 1887, when a group of people travelled to Gobbler’s Knob (which is funny), a part of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania (which is also a funny name, I think) to “consult the groundhog”. From that date onwards, people have gathered at the spot every day since, which is silly, because a groundhog has zero clue what is going on at the best of times. They are moron animals in my experience.

Anyway, it was a relatively unknown tradition occurring only in certain parts of America and Canada, and then they went and made a film about it. Now those two words (’day’ and ‘groundhog’) are famous throughout the world - everyone confident that if you are a news reporter, and cover the story, then you are doomed to repeat the same day over and over again until you die, or whatever the film was about. 

Either way, everyone knows about Groundhog Day, but few know that it’s actually a real thing. What fun!
