Back in the 1800s, Punxsutawney Phil would have been a meal. Back in the day, Gobbler's Knob was the site of an annual groundhog hunt. You can read all about the history of groundhogs in Pennsylvania at History.com.
February 2 is one of the most important non-holidays on the calendar.

And if you want to relive the film every day, Instructables has a fun hack that makes an alarm clock…
Created by Spanish director Aritz Moreno and producer Leire Apellaniz, this 60-second short is the story a man who gets up and prepares some coffee. Or maybe he never gets up. It's like a dark, condensed version of Groundhog Day without the possibility of ever having a happy ending.
We tend to think of science fiction and fantasy as being like mystery novels — the story is over when you solve the case. So we obsess over questions that have no answers. But here are 10 questions that are better unanswered, either because the possibilities are fascinating or because the answers would be terrible.
Harold Ramis — director and co-writer of Groundhog Day and the brains behind the Ghostbusters operation, died today from complications related to auto-immune inflammatory vasculitis. He was 69.

You could buy it, set an old-fashioned clock radio to go off at 6:00 a.m. playing "I Got You, Babe," and relive the same day over and over—and over and over and over…
This is either the best idea on the planet, or the absolute worst thing ever: The folks behind the Matilda Broadway play are developing a brand new Groundhog Day musical based on the wonderful film. Ned Ryerson solo or bust.
It's never not a good day to watch Groundhog Day, and today is even more not not a good day to watch it. Quite possibly one of the weirdest, most off-beat "holiday movies" out there, Groundhog Day is just begging to become a habit, something to recite sections of.
Today, millions of Americans waited with bated breath for a stupid rodent to see its shadow, all in hopes of figuring out how long winter will last. Silly? Sure. But not the weirdest winter predictor, not by a long shot.Get hold of the breastbone of a recently deceased goose. : "The length of the breastbone…
Groundhog Day is such a wonderful movie that it's totally transformed the connotation of the actual holiday from "that day when we believe the magical rat is a weather god" to a symbol of unbearable repetitiveness.

John Laroquette is back on Chuck, and one member of the…

I kind of love 12:01, the TV movie which had the misfortune to appear in the same year as Groundhog Day, which had the same basic plot. Because 12:01 uses its premise well, and has a pretty sweet love story.
I know there is a tradition to uphold, and I enjoyed the movie, but groundhog texting? Do they even have thumbs?
