The United States has a very odd tradition to determine when spring will begin. We use a groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil who lives in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to tell us. Phil the groundhog lives approximately 100 miles from our little town of Greenville.
Punxatawney Phil even has his own website: http://www.groundhog.org/
Here are some SMARTamps we made to teach you a little more about February 2, Groundhog Day.
