The History of Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day is celebrated every year on February 2nd. On this day, we rely on a groundhog to predict whether or not we will have 6 more weeks of winter or if spring is on its way. Though the origins of this holiday are not clear, it is believed to have been influenced by the Celtic pagan festival Imbolc and the Christian holiday of Candlemas. The holiday's first celebration took place in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, and it is in this city where the Groundhog Day's biggest celebrations continue to occur.
