Groundhog Day – Feb. 2 – hints at spring. It’s not here yet, but it soon will be. The days are getting noticeably longer, and there’s something in the air.

In Europe, it was thought to be the day when hibernating creatures began to emerge from their dens – something worth celebrating at a time of year when food was scarce and a chubby groundhog might become a nourishing stew.
