Groundhog Day


Hi, Guys!,
Last week, the Groundhog Day took place in USA and Canada. It's a very significant day since it is believed that if this little animal emerges from its burrow, and if it doesn't observe any shadow, Spring is coming soon, but on the other way around, the groundhog gets into the cave again and Spring will come within 6 weeks.

German settlers are thought to be the ones who brought this tradition of predicting future weather conditions based on animals. They used to observe hedgedhogs, but when they arrived in America, they replaced this animal for the more common American groundhog.

Now, would you like to watch the video?
