It's Groundhog Day Again!

Happy Groundhog Day

Today, a snowy, cold day in Ohio, I'm sure that groundhog did NOT see his shadow.  Could that mean an early spring for us?  Let's hope so!  It's the perfect day to watch an old movie and do some sewing.

What could be better than another go around with Bill Murray in the movie Groundhog Day.  You can watch this trailer clip and it will bring back the memories again and again and again . . .

Ultimate Holiday Site from the Hallmark Channel

Everyday a holiday!  I like that idea and love the site above for finding the wacky holidays.  The nice part of this website is that it gives a short, fun synopsis about each holiday.  For instance, here is what it says about Groundhog Day:

"This meteorological rodent tradition began as Hedgehog Day in England. Early settlers brought the tradition across the Atlantic, but it turns out there were no hedgehogs in America, so they had to settle on the lowly groundhog. To make matters worse, our groundhogs apparently sleep later than their hedgehogs, so when it comes time for the big day in Punxatawney, PA we have to nudge Phil awake to tell us whether we'll have 6 more weeks of winter. Hedgehogs would never need nudging."

Look what you can buy on Amazon!  Click here for a direct link.

Stay warm and think spring!
