Groundhog Day 2010 is Tuesday, February 2, 2010 It's a silly old wives tale about the groundhog seeing or not seeing his shadow for predicting the remainder of the winter, but, if you're looking for a winter break, heading to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania for Groundhog Day might just be the cure for your winter blues.

Any Christian who seriously believes that shit is a closeted pagan, there's no proof it means anything; I don't know why the local media makes such a big thing out of it every year.

A groundhog knows nothing about the weather, we all know that. It's just a time to party in the mist of winter. WE WILL have 6 more weeks of winter and usually our weather really doesn't improve until May. We live in the north.....and those are the facts. So happy Groundhog Day to everyone anyhow.

Oh come on lighten up..... so they have a little festival in the winter and ask a groundhog if winter is coming to an early end.
Seriously it put this little town on the map and brings some revenue their way and makes the people happy so what of it Mr. Stick in the mud?

Whatever you say, anon.

I might be inclined to take you more seriously if you actually put a proper picture of your ugly mug, but then you'd have to register an actual account first! Ugly!

Passing through Punxy the only thing that stood out was a sign of a rat, and a Sheetz store. Must be a great place to call home. Is that were they filmed Children of the Corn?

Interesting dichotomy: If the groundhog predicts 6 more weeks of winter, around here THAT IS an EARLY spring.
March 16, is an early spring.

come on now...... Punxy is my hometown and there is an abundance of bars and churches which seems to be what Erie has going for it when I pass through.

Dia de la Marmota.

My desk calander has holidays listed in English and Spanish.

I didn't know there was a "Dia de la Marmota" south of the border. You learn something new every day.
No pilgrimage for me. We tried to get the boss to let us out early for Groundhog Eve. He's intolerant. We're going to turn him in to Corporate HR for diversity re-training.

You needn't have gone to such angry lengths to address this issue. Listen to the tale - if X happens there are 6 weeks until spring. If Y happens there are 6 more weeks of winter. Count the days between 2/2 and 3/21. It's 47. That's 6 weeks plus change. Whoop-dee-doooo - either way and every way, it's basically 6 weeks, but the well-publicized con gives the people of Punxsatawney 5 minutes of fame and a reason to break out the booze.
And the media eats it up because it's the middle of winter, everyone's beginning to suffer cabin fever and it gives them something to waste an inch or two of print on that momentarily helps alleviate the winter duldrums in what they're sure is every bit the harmless fun that most stupid pranks are. It's that, a whoopee cushion, a stuffed animal with "gas" or (heaven forbid) another episode of whatever the brainless comedy hit is at the top of the charts ten years ago.
