Groundhog Day is celebrated every year on February 2nd. The official groundhog lives in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. His name is Punxsutawney Phil. If Phil sees his shadow (the day is bright and sunny), there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow (the day is cloudy), there will be an early spring.
Groundhog's Day is an American holiday, but it has European roots in Candlemas Day.
Learn this saying from USA:
If the sun shines on Groundhog Day;
Half the fuel and half the hay.
