Today is my very favorite holiday of the year. I love that it's now 2010 in the United States of America and we have an entire day dedicated to listening to a groundhog predict the future. I thing that's incredible. Today, Punxsutawney Phil once again saw his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter. Or as NationalGeographic.com says, "Regardless of the weather prediction on Groundhog Day, Phil "speaks" to his human caretakers, known as the Inner Circle, in Groundhogese and tells them his forecast. The Inner Circle then translates Phil's words for the world to hear--or so they say." Hahah, I'm not really sure this holiday could be any more "me". I think it's brilliant. It's definitely the most ridiculous holiday and therefore my absolute favorite.
