Groundhog Day is today (February 2nd). The traditions is the groundhog awakens from his nap and goes outside to see if he can see his shadow. It is believed that if the groundhog sees his shadow that there will then be six more weeks of winter. If he is not able to see his shadow, the groundhog remains outside to play and people celebrate believing that spring is just around the corner.
Ontario’s Groundhog Wiarton Willie DID NOT see a shadow meaning spring may come early!!!
