   Groundhog Day is celebrated on February 2. 
(In North America)

According to ancient (old) stories, if it is cloudy when the groundhog comes out of his home underground on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will see his shadow and go back into his home, and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks.

   Do you have any winter traditions or ancient stories about the weather? Many cultures have traditions at springtime; spring is a happy time of year after a cold and gray winter. Practice talking about the traditions where you live in English. What is the story? Who is in the story? When does the story happen? How do you celebrate? Talking about your own culture in English is a great way to practice and make friends!
