February 2, 2011: Groundhogs Day

Feel like you should be blogging about Groundhogs Day Today? This holiday celebrated in the United States & Canada is a goofy holiday around predicting the weather based on a groundhogs reaction to his shadow.

Think it's crazy? Here's some ideas to blog.
  • Do a little research into the origin of the holiday.
  • When it comes to groundhogs day we usually think about Punxsatawney Phil in Pennsylvania, but did you know there's also Stormy Marmot, Chuckles, Queen Charlotte, Dunkirk Dave, Spanish Joe, and Sir Walter Wally. If you had a groundhog in your front yard, what would his name be and what would his weather prediction be?
  • What weather are you hoping for at this point in the year - are you hoping for an early spring or are you crossing your fingers for a few more extra weeks of winter?
  • In the 1993 Bill Murray film Groundhogs Day Bill Murray is forced to relive one day of his life over and over again until he gets it right. Is there a day of your life you wish you could relive again in order to get it right?
