|Subject: Groundhog Day and Time Tue Feb 02, 2016 3:09 pm|| |
Guys saw this fun, and also interesting article about Groundhog Day today. The article talks about how
the holiday is about much more than just folklore, and is actually about time itself, and measuring time.
It mentions how important the time of year was, and is for farmers, and also how planning of crops has
to be done. It even talks about other names for the holiday that date all the way back to Medieval times,
and predictions of weather, time frames, and seasons.
Just thought it was neat, and you might enjoy.
