As we all know in a couple of days is Groundhog Day and we know the legend of Punxsutawney Phil the legendary groundhog that comes out every year on February 2 and either sees his shadow and we get six more weeks of winter, which I for one do NOT want to see this year or he doesn't. Here is a great website to check out for some great information on our favorite little groundhog: Groundhog Day.
Even though our Punxsutawney Phil is the star of the day, we can't forget about some of our favorite and famous rodents on this day. How will you celebrate Groundhog Day this year? Will you do anything different or go on like it's another day? To celebrate the wonder of rodents everywhere, there are many things that you and your family can do together that is fun, educational and exciting to learn about rodents. Try watching that famous movie with Bill Murray entitled Groundhog Day, where he continues to live the same day over and over again. This movie is so funny and would be great to watch together as a family. You could also watch Ratatouille, or Mickey Mouse on the Disney Channel, maybe play a game such as the Alvin and the Chipmunks The Squeakquel game or even take the kids to the theater to see the movie. Check out some great websites online of some of your favorite rodents. The possibilities are endless and you'll be amazed to see not only what you can learn, but how much fun you can have together as a family. So this year, do something different and celebrate the day of rodents. Happy Groundhog Day and here's to Phil not seeing his shadow this year!
