2015 Groundhog Day Fun Facts #groundhogday
Just thought I’d share some fun facts about Groundhog Day. If you have any fun facts or anything you’d like to add, feel free to leave a comment. J
**Groundhog day is celebrated on 2 FEB. If the groundhog sees its shadow and crawls back into its burrow, winter will last another six weeks.
**The largest groundhog celebration is in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
**The 1st documented mention of Groundhog Day in America was on 4 FEB 1841.
**Punxsutawney Phil’s predictions are right 39% of the time.
**The average groundhog weights between 12-15 pounds and lives between 5-7 years.
**Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today. Another 6 weeks of winter weather. If you ask me, that’s a pretty accurate prediction considering there’s another snow storm on the way to the east coast. Stay warm out that way!
Question: Has anyone ever seen a groundhog?
