Groundhog Day 2013

By January 17, 2013

Follow me on:

In about 2 weeks, February arrives, which means Groundhog Day 2013 groundhog day 2013 is right around the corner. Let's be blunt. When it comes to Groundhog Day, there are two vocal camps -- one of which holds Groundhog Day to be the most insipid of holidays. I belong to the other camp, myself, and watch Groundhog Day on DVD religiously ever year. Groundhog Day 2013 will be no exception.

This article begins by discussing control measures you can take to prevent marauding woodchucks from devouring your garden. I then proceed to sketch Groundhog Day's historical background, before concluding with my thoughts on why Groundhog Day even matters, at all -- from a psychological perspective.

Well, Ground Hog day is a silly day….BUT.. and there is always a but…with the stress in our lives, in our country, and overseas we need to get silly every once in a while. Focusing on something else gives one a break. Plus, being a former teacaher, it is a great time to seize the moment and teach children about the calendar, the animal itself, its environment etc. Have a silly day tomorrow….for…. “Only the shadow knows”.
