At Pine Cove, we love animals and we’re seriously fun! Put those things together and you’ve got Groundhog Day! Do you find yourself googling, “What is Groundhog Day?” every year on February 2nd? Considering they’re one of the only animals with a national holiday, and because they have a universally known saying of “How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood,” we thought today (yes today!) would be the best time to give you the inside scoop.
To save you from a google search: Groundhog Day is a silly tradition that’s been around for hundreds of years! Although there are multiple crazily named famous groundhogs, Punxsutawney Phil is the most popular (what a great potential camp name!). If he comes out of his burrow and sees his shadow, the tradition is that there will be six more weeks of winter. If he comes out and doesn’t see his shadow, then spring is right around the corner! Well… maybe. Phil’s predictions have only been correct 40% of the time.
But have no fear! We’ve compiled some seriously fun Pine Cove predictions that are 100% correct, 100% of the time!
Thankfully we don’t need a groundhog to predict the future when we serve a God who is outside of time. But Groundhog Day still is pretty seriously-fun in our opinion!
