February 2nd only means one thing - it's Groundhog
Day! Punxsutawney Phil is a very special groundhog- he can predict the weather!
Every February 2nd,this very special groundhog comes out of his warm, comfy
burrow as thousands of curious onlookers look on. If Phil sees his shadow,
there will be 6 more weeks of winter. If he doesn't see his shadow, spring will
come early that year.
While most groundhogs live to 8 years, Punxsutawney Phil, named after King Phillip, drinks a magical punch during the annual summer-time Groundhog Picnic which gives him 7 more years of life!
