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
