How Many Weeks until Groundhog Day?
Groundhog day is a traditional celebration in the USA which were celebrating from more than 100 years. The Groundhog Day is celebrated on February 2 every year. When we look at the historical perspective of this special day, at the beginning of February every year, Americans are looking at a private beaver named ‘Punxsutawney Phil’ and trying to understand if the spring will come early this year. On February 2, the Groundhog Day Festival is held in the United States. That day, Punxsutawney Phill is taken out of his home and predicts how the weather will be in the rest of the winter in front of thousands of festival participants from all over the world.
According to legend, if the beaver wakes up from winter sleep and sees the shadow, then the six-week winter weather is expected in the United States. If Phil does not see the shadow, then all America will be made ready to spring that year early. Beavers share their predictions with America since 1887 Gobbler Knob, a small town near Punxsutawney. This incident became even more popular thanks to the famous 1993 film Groundhog Day. In the following years after the movie came out, over 30,000 crowd of visitors came to Punxsutawney to watch Phil’s exit from his home. When we look at scientific researches about the Groundhog Day festival, it seems impossible to predict the weather conditions by beavers.
