The Weird History Behind Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day. Its a great movie and one weird American tradition. On February 2nd of each year, if a particular groundhog in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania sees his shadow, we'll have to suffer through six more weeks of winter. If not we'll have an early spring. But as Trace tells us, there's more to the story than just kitschy folklore.
