When is Groundhog Day and how to people celebrate it?

Just past year, many were upset with the groundhog when he predicted six more weeks of winter. It is only the 19th time out of the 123 recorded appearances that Phil has seen his shadow, the York Daily Record reported. If the groundhog, belonging to the marmot squirrel family, sees his shadow then it means another six weeks of winter lie ahead in the United States. Let's celebrate it by learning about a VR game called Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son. Yet The beloved Bill Murray comedy is about a cantankerous weather man who finds himself trapped in an infinite loop, repeating the same day for months, possibly years, possibly centuries. The first official trek to Gobbler's Knob was made February 2, 1887. Since 1988, the national average temperature in the U.S. On Candlemas, the clergy would bless and give out candles to last congregants for the rest of winter. So is it early spring or more winter forecast. Some of the events listed on the schedule include chain saw carving demos, a screening of the film Groundhog Day, the "Gobbler's Knob Got Talent" talent show and the Groundhog Ball, to name a few.

Cheers erupted when the early spring prediction was announced, with one of Phil's handlers advising the crowd to invest in swimsuits. They also whistle when searching for a female groundhog, giving the creatures the nickname of "whistle pigs". His predictions were wrong in both 2017 and 2018.
