I always like to look at the history of a thing.

The why of it.

Why February 2?

Why ground hogs?

Don't forget to watch the movie!

The German Candlemas tradition was hedgehogs. We don't have hedgehogs. I guess we should be thankful that the good Pennsylvania Germans didn't use possums instead.

I guess the question becomes "why a hedgehog?" I dunno.

I lived in western Pennsylvania, about 70 miles from Punxutawney, when the movie was made. It was a quaint regional thing before the movie; it's been a mob scene since.
