Groundhog Day Predicts Early Spring in Canada!
Early Spring or six more weeks of winter? According to Canada’s celebrity groundhogs, Wiarton Willie from Ontario and Shubenacadie Sam from Nova Scotia, Canada will be having an early Spring, as both groundhogs did not see their shadows yesterday morning!
The North American tradition of Groundhog Day has been taking place for over a century. As the Folklore has it, if the groundhog sees its shadow when it emerges from its burrow on Groundhog Day, there will be six more weeks of winter. If the groundhog doesn’t see its shadow, then tradition says spring is on the way.
Let all us Canadians welcome Spring with open arms and hope that the groundhogs’ predictions are correct!
