You know you are thinking it, this winter has been BRUTAL! I don’t know if you can stuff a groundhog, but ole Punxsutawney Phil best be watching his back if he sees that shadow! On Friday Feb 2nd the little guy is gonna pop out and predict if we’ve got six more long weeks of winter to do. This is derived from a Pennsylvania Dutch superstition where a groundhog emerges from it’s burrow and then, wahhhallllaaaa, it’s as if he’s a meteorologist and predict the weather. In Germany, they also celebrate a weather predicting animal, the badger.
Pop on Amazon and stream Ground Hog Day, the classic film staring Bill Murray, while you mix up our overnight Punxsutawney FrenchToast Casserole a kids favorite full of cinnamon, bread and apple gooey goodness! On Friday morning wake up the kids early, tune into the Official Groundhog Punxsutawney Groundhog Club’s live feed (BTW-this is a real thing and it is totally hysterical) and pray (HARD) that this little critter don’t see that shadow!
