Groundhog day was a couple days ago and every year people wait to see whether or not Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow. This year it seems he couldn’t find it, which supposedly means we’re in for an early spring.

Apparently this is only the nineteenth time out of 123 that the groundhog hasn’t seen his shadow, and some folks can’t help but wonder, how accurate could his predictions really be? Phil is usually wrong, and meteorologists don’t appear to support his findings. Everyone knows if he does see his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. According to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, this tradition originates from the Candlemas Day in Europe, which is the “Christian Festival of Lights” that falls on Feb. 2, midway between the start and end of winter.

No one can say for sure whether the predictions will come true or not, but most people probably can’t deny that they’re happy with this year’s results.
