Groundhog Day is an annual traditional that occurs every year on February 2nd. Legend has it that if a groundhog comes out of his burrow and sees his shadow, he'll be frightened and run back to his home and hibernate, signifying six more weeks of winter. If however he doesn't see his shadow, he'll stay out and spring will come six weeks early. There are many weather prognosticating groundhogs around the world and many Groundhog Day celebrations. Arguably the most famous groundhog is Punxsutawney Phil who lives in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where there are huge Groundhog Day celebrations every year. Other towns and cities have their own groundhogs and celebrations as well including Staten Island Chuck on Staten Island in New York City, New York and Balzac Billy in Balzac, Alberta, Canada.
