A widely popular tradition celebrated on the 2nd of every February, Groundhog Day is rooted in folklore and tradition. This holiday is named after the groundhog, which people before used to watch emerge from the burrows to know if winter is ending soon or will stick around longer. According to the lore, when the groundhog comes out from its burrow on February 2 and it’s cloudy, this means spring will follow soon. If it comes out on this day and the weather is sunny, it means that winter will stick around longer.
