It’s Groundhog Day! According to legend, if it’s cloudy when a groundhog comes out of its burrow on February 2nd, and thus he does not see his shadow, then spring will come early. However, if it is sunny on this day, the groundhog will see its shadow and go back into its burrow, and the winter will continue for six weeks more. Whether you believe in the legend or not, here are some pictures of groundhogs to make the holiday that much more exciting!
