It's Groundhog's Day


Today is Groundhog Day, and not just because the news makes us feel like we're stuck in a never-ending loop of awfulness.  It's February 2nd, which literally means it's Groundhog Day.

Here are some results from a new survey about the holiday . . . you might be surprised at how seriously some people take it.

1.  4.2% of people believe the groundhog ALWAYS gets his prediction right, and almost one out of five think he's right at least two-thirds of the time.  He's not, by the way . . . he's only about 39% accurate, which is worse than a coin flip.

2.  6% of people watch the movie "Groundhog Day" every year to celebrate.

3.  1% have traveled to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to watch the groundhog ceremony.

4.  And 4% of people say Groundhog Day is one of their favorite holidays. 

As for this year, 67% of people predicted Punxsutawney Phil would see his shadow, which means six more weeks of winter.   THEY WERE RIGHT, HE DID!
