It only took 130 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 whats happened to Groundhog Day. Now we can enjoy “Groundhog Day” on AMC all day long. So that is one reason to celebrate Groundhog Day. Here are some others:

Unlike the Easter bunny, it stays outside.

If a rodent can bring us a early spring, who am I to argue.

Phil’s forecast is more reliable then many weather forecasters.

It’s a holiday that’s over early.

If you’ve ever gone to Gobbler’s Knob, you’ll enjoy music and fire barrels. Phil tells the Inner Circle if Spring is coming and that’s it. It’s 7:30 and time to get off the hill.

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.
