A groundhog is not a hog at all, but a type of beaver that lives on land and underground. On February 2, many Americans celebrate Groundhog Day. According to legend, if the groundhog comes out, sees its shadow, and gets scared and hides in its hole, there will be six more weeks of winter. If the groundhog comes out and doesn’t see its shadow, then winter is over and spring has begun. The most famous Groundhog Day celebration is in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil predicts the weather.
