Groundhog Day!!


Punxsutawney, PA.

 If he sees his shadow, be prepared for six more weeks of winter weather. If there is no shadow to be found, then spring is just around the corner!
So - today is Groundhog Day - a regular holiday in Pennsylvania. Tens of thousands of people travel to Punxsutawney before the sunrise. They have to park miles away and take shuttles into town. And from what I understand, the average Joe can't even get near enough to see Phil, the world's most famous groundhog. Punxsutawney Phil emerges from his warm burrow at about 7:30 am to greet the tens of thousands of people who have made the trek to Gobbler's Knob, outside of Punxsutawney, PA.

Angels we have heard on high

Angels we have heard on high Sweetly singing o'er the plains And the mountains in reply Echoing their joyous strains
