Will the Shadow be Shown?

Groundhog Day was adopted in the U.S. in 1887. Clymer H. Freas was the editor of the Local paper Punxsutawney spirit at the time, and he began promoting the town’s groundhog as the official “Groundhog Day meteorologist”.

Groundhog Day (Canadian French: Jour de la Marmotte; Pennsylvania German: Grundsaudaag, Murmeltiertag) is a traditional holiday celebrated on February 2. According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks. To learn more about groundhog day books are available on the subject.   http://hcpl2.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/nw/search/results?qu=groundhog+day&te=&rt=false%7C%7C%7CTITLE%7C%7C%7CTitle

Ho Ho Ho Mystery

Liss is surprised when an old friend from high school asks her to spend a week at the Christmas tree farm she recently inherited from a great-uncle. Realizing it would be the perfect chance for her and her husband Dan to get away from work, Liss happily accepts the offer and packs her bags for the tiny town of New Boston.It's hardly the idyllic vacation locale they'd hoped for, especially when needling neighbors start raising questions about the farm's dark history. Who was the man whose body was found neatly netted in a shipment of Scotch pine? Why did the owner vanish into thin air? And why are the trees growing so close together, forming a maze more twisted than a Celtic knot? What a Christmas mystery to unfold. History Mystery Book club will discuss this book on December 21, 2016 @ 2:00 PM.
