Happy Groundhog Day! Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning, so it looks like we’re in for six more weeks of winter. Sigh. I’m not sure how exactly a groundhog becomes a meteorologist, but it’s a fun tradition.
I realized while writing this that many of you are young enough that you weren’t around when the Bill Murray/Andie MacDowell classic “Groundhog Day” was released in 1993. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you check your local listings or add it to your Netflix queue (sadly, it’s not available on Instant Play). Bill Murray plays a disgruntled meteorologist sent to cover the Groundhog’s Day festivities in Punxsutawney, and he gets trapped reliving the day until he learns to be a decent human being. It got me to thinking, there are a ton of movies about Christmas but not many about other holidays. What’s your favorite non-Christmas holiday movie? And are you ready for spring to just get here already, or are you enjoying the winter?
