Thanks Phil!

As readers, you know how much I love postcards and how much I love animals... so of course I have to let you all know about this opportunity to send an adorable greeting on today, Groundhog Day! I also want to thank Punxsutawney Phil for the encouragement that winter is almost over. Phil did not see his shadow, so according to traditional lore, Spring is on its way!

If you don't buy into the animal predicting the future thing, like Octopi guessing soccer finalists or groundhogs predicting seasonal changes, fair enough. However, you must at least give credit to the day for also inspiring a Bill Murray movie by the same name: a truly hysterical addition to the great film era of the '80s/early '90s.

If you want to take your devotion to Groundhog Day even further, (whether your motivation is loving animals, rejoicing that your S.A.D is nearing its end or revering Bill Murray), you can visit Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. This site gives you all the details you need to plan a good sojourn or to prepare for next year's big day!

Have any of you been to Punxsutawney to see Groundhog Phil?
