Happy Groundhog Day!

Groundhog Day
is one of my favorite holidays. To me, it seems that once Groundhog Day has arrived, Spring becomes somehow more tangible, a definite possibility despite the long procession of cold days to come. Once Groundhog Day has arrived, the daylight hours have increased enough that it is still daylight when I depart for home after work, and soon, dusk will still be lingering upon reaching home.
Normally, I'm not a fan of the garden-devouring little rodents, but on Groundhog Day, I set my animosity aside and make a temporary peace. Today in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, Phil the groundhog poked his snout out of his den and predicted the early arrival of spring. Yay Phil!
