      Publicado por: Maritza Torres
    • The Groundhog Day is a party or custom in United States.

    • History
      The history seems set in the German immigrants who arrived in EE. UU., Especially the state of Pennsylvania. German farmers used the method to know when they have to cultivate their land.
    • Already in Germany, these farmers observe the badger, which leave their lair in winter could have two reactions: if he saw his shadow on a sunny day, was frightened and went back to hibernation for six weeks, indicating that continued the winter but to leave if he did not see his shadow because it was not sunny, there comes the spring, came out confident.
    • Tradition
      This tradition is celebrated throughout the United States for many stocks, and even in Canada (where the most famous marmot called Wiarton Willie), however, is the marmot Punxsutawney Phil of the most famous, with a tradition of more than one century (specifically 1887).
    • Wiarton Willie and Phil
    • The day of the marmot states (roughly) half of the period between the winter solstice and spring equinox. Like many traditions, it has no real or scientific, and indeed according to National Geographic magazine, the marmot has only the end of winter predicted correctly 28% of the time in 60 years.
