Groundhog Day Is Soon!

By Lilah El-ashry Weaver

      Have you heard about Groundhog Day? If you haven’t, it is on February 2nd. The very first Groundhog Day was in 1887! Groundhog Day is a day to celebrate the end of hibernation. It is said that Punxsutawny Phil (the groundhog) will come out of its hole. If he sees his shadow, there are 6 more weeks of winter. If not, spring is almost here. Groundhog Day is not like Halloween, you don’t dress differently or get a lot of candy and treats. You can simply go to a place in Pennsylvania early in the morning or watch the groundhog come out on TV. Do you think Punxstawney Phil will see his shadow this year?
