Canada’s groundhogs predict six more weeks of winter
The U.S. may have Punxsutawney Phil, but Canada has its own group of groundhogs who forecast the weather every year on February 2nd, otherwise known as Groundhog Day.
According to legend, if the groundhog sees his shadow on the 2nd of February, it means that winter will last for six more weeks. As the CBC says,
It’s always been a pack of lies, of course, but it’s fun, and we need fun if we are to survive another Canadian February.
