The groundhog has saw his shadow for my whole lifetime...
Its still celebrated by the fact that it is pointless
The fact that it is something we rarely notice or care about renders it useless. You don't get some friends together for Groundhog Day, you don't go out for a night on the town to celebrate the mammals rise from his hole. No its just something you see as a blurb on the local news channel. Since it has no religious, social, or economic benefits it it ultimately useless
It is designed to kill brain cells.
Phuxatony Phill AKA the groundhog is a national symbol and is a good way to start off black rights month, with a little happiness and joy
Its not pointless, because I celebrate my birthday on Groundhog Day. :p, eat that legislature.
