|What is Groundhog Day?|
Groundhog Day is observed on February 2 in both the United States and Canada. Traditionally, if a groundhog emerges from its hole on Groundhog Day, then winter will soon end. If, however, a groundhog retreats back into its hole on Groundhog Day, then winter will continue for another six weeks. The largest Groundhog Day celebration takes place each year in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
