Groundhog day-February2. Groundhog Day was founded in the traditions of Romans. The story was based on the Scottish couplet : If Candlemas Day is bright and clear, There’ll be 2 winters in the year. Candlemas Day is celebrated on February 2nd. It was determined that if an animal came out of its underground hibernation on that day, and the sun was out, there would be 6 more weeks of winter. What began as a tale from ancient times, became fact in the early 1880’s . A group of residents from Pennsylvania decided to celebrate Candlemas Day by going to the woods in search of a groundhog. The group was named “ the Groundhog Club”. They deemed a certain hilltop near the town as “Gobbler’s Knob” proclaiming that from this knob, people could accurately forecast the weather.
