Happy Groundhog Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Groundhog Day to you and yours! 

Groundhog Day, to those of you that have been under ground or something, is a funny little holiday in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where this little groundhog called "Phil" get pulled out of a cage. The men on the groundhog committee talk to it, and Phil tells them if he sees his shadow (6 more weeks of winter), or he does not ( an early spring).

Now, honestly, I don't really believe this, but they made a movie about. Groundhog Day with Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell is one of my all time favorite movies. Bill Murray's character is Phil, a meteoroligist for the local T.V. channel. Every year his station sends him, a camera man (Larry), and the producer (Rita), to Punxsutaney to broadcast the little rat (as Phil calls it). Anyway the next morning he finds himself having extreme deja vu. He wakes up at six a.m. the next morning to find it's Groundhog Day again!

After a  while, Phil decides to be a daredevil, eating cake and a smoking cigarettes, because tomorrow will be Groundhog Day and he will never had had the cake ( SIDE NOTE: Wish I could do that!) Eventually he becomes criminal, suicidal, and thankfully, heroic. Phil begins to fall in love with Rita, so every day, he learns as much as possible about her so the next day he can impress her. Soon he realizes that she would be interested in a good man, which he is not. Phil begins to change little things about himself and uses his circumstances to save a lot of people. He learns French poetry an piano, and finally he convinces Rita that she loves him too. They wake up to find it February 3rd. A sweet ending to a sweet (and hilarious) story.

            To you all, Have a very happy Groundhog Day!!!
