History (Groundhog Day Quotes)


The origins of Groundhog Day can be traced back to ancient European weather lore.

It is said that if a hibernating animal (often a bear or badger in Europe) emerges from its burrow on Candlemas Day (February 2nd) and sees its shadow due to clear weather, it will be frightened and return to its den, indicating six more weeks of winter.

If it doesn’t see its shadow due to cloudy weather, it will stay outside, signifying an early spring. Source
