February 2nd is Groundhog day! happy groundhog day then!

Groundhog Day, February 2nd, is a popular tradition in the United States.

It is the day that the Groundhog comes out of his hole after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow.

If he sees it, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his hole.

If the day is cloudy and, hence, shadowless, he takes it as a sign of spring and stays above ground.
