Traditions are Good: Groundhog Day!

IMDB, Groundhog DayGroundhog Day is, let’s face it, kind of a strange holiday.  It started almost randomly in southern PA about 150 years ago and, for some unfathomable reason, spread.  Apparently people will respect the weather sense of a chubby rat if there’s a party involved.

The 1993 film Groundhog Day isn’t technically about the holiday; it uses it as more of a backdrop than a focus.   Still, a bizarre little holiday couldn’t ask for a higher honor than being the namesake of one of the best movies of all time.

So, on the 20th anniversary no less, why not make the effort to enjoy this timeless (ha!  get it?  timeless!) classic.  It’ll very likely be on thirty or forty times after all!
