NATIONAL GROUNDHOG DAY – this is the day when a small, oddly shaped, furry animal predicts future weather patterns throughout North American for the next few months. Sounds reasonable, right? It actually originated with Germans using a hedgehog for inspiration upon their arrival in the US. Today, Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania is the Groundhog Day hub and draws thousands of people. What I want to know is: how did they get the original hedgehog to tell them that this is exactly how he predicts winter’s end?
NATIONAL HEAVENLY HASH DAY – I have three words: yum, yum, yummy!!!
Hash, to me, sounds exactly like what it is. A bunch a stuff thrown together. Not exactly appetizing but if you put the word Heavenly in front of it and it is mostly chocolate stuff, then it sounds … dare I say … Yummy! You know how to celebrate this one … container of ice cream and a spoon.
