Groundhog Day is celebrated on February 2nd of each year. Groundhogs are cute little creatures from the squirrel family that can grow to be 20 inches long and weigh about 15 pounds. Every year we wait to see if the little guy sees his shadow. Realizing that groundhogs usually hibernate in the winter, we wait for the true star of the show to make the annual prediction.
