[Best Syndication News] It's Groundhog Day a holiday that is recognized on February 2nd in the US and in Canada. The holiday is rather a fun one, that has the animal rights people wanting a robot groundhog to be used instead of a real one. If the groundhog sees its shadow it will go back underground and there will be six more weeks of winter. If the groundhog doesn't see its shadow then winter is almost over.

The Pennsylvania German's have made this a tradition, with the folklore of predicting spring. The largest celebration of Groundhog Day with crowds gathering upwards of 40,000 people are in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. All to see if the groundhog will go back into hiding.
