Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania - the home of Phil the Ground Hog, and in the news every My husband and I went here in 2002 to celebrate Ground Hogs Day! What a great time we had with lots of awesome memories!
Groundhog Day is the only major traditional U.S. celebration that is about weather. That's why this sign in Punxsutawney Phil's town asserts that this little hamlet in western PA is "the weather capital of the world." In my 5-page article I introduce Groundhog Day and groundhog control in the garden. I also explain the meaning behind this outrageous celebration: http://landscaping.about.com/cs/pestcontrol/a/groundhog_day.htm (sign from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, home of the Groundhog).
Groundhog Day is celebrated all over the United States, but the most famous event is held in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania where Punxsutawney Phil (a 123-years-old groundhog) draws crowds of thousands. Description from e-forwards.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
