It only took 131 years but this holiday may have finally made it. How do we know? How about when they run a movie marathon in honor of the day!  For years, we've been able to watch "A Christmas Story" all day on Christmas Day.

That's what has happened to Groundhog Day. Now we can enjoy "Groundhog Day" on AMC all day long. So that is one reason to celebrate Groundhog Day but here are some others:

If you've never gone to Gobbler's Knob for Groundhog Day, you should. Go early, stay at a Bed and Breakfast. If you can't make it to Punxsutawney to see Phil, this is what it's like.

Take Rt. 17 and get off exit 66 in Apalachin and drive to Warren Center, Pa. Find Rick Beers farm and go and stand in one of his fields and look for a woodchuck.
