I watched the Bill Murray movie in order to commemorate the day

Punxsutawney Phil Forecasts More Winter
PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (Reuters) – The weather-prognosticating groundhog known as Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow during the annual Groundhog Day ceremony on Sunday, signaling six more weeks of winter in North America.
The chubby rodent, said to dine on a rich diet that includes strawberry sundaes, was hauled from his cozy burrow beneath a maple stump on Gobbler’s Knob into the glare of television camera lights and cheers from hundreds of onlookers, as part of a 117-year-old ritual.
The ceremony, which dates back to 1887, stems from an ancient European superstition that winter will last another six weeks if a burrowing animal like a groundhog or a hedgehog sees its shadow on Candlemas Day, which falls on Feb. 2. No shadow means an early spring.
The Punxsutawney rodent has seen its shadow 41 times over the past 50 years. It last missed its shadow in 1999.
Sunday’s prediction followed weeks of unusually cold weather in the U.S. Northeast and Midwest during January.
For the town of Punxsutawney, a rural community of 6,800 people located 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, Groundhog Day is an annual tourist festival of parades, music, sleigh rides and ice carvings that can attract thousands of out-of-town visitors.
Groundhog Day has gained world notoriety in recent years, thanks mainly to the 1993 Hollywood film “Groundhog Day,” starring Bill Murray. Organizers have since taken to selling groundhog souvenirs on the World Wide Web.
