Yup that's right- Hedgehog Day is Feb 2!
The modern groundhog day tradition is actually based on the ancient roman hedgehog day ( or more accurately, night)!
"The theory behind Groundhog Day (Shadow = another 6 weeks of winter, No Shadow = an early spring) originated in 18th century America and was based on the European tradition of Hedgehog Day (the hedgehog, a cousin of the groundhog, is not indigenous to North America). The tradition was that if the sun was shining on Candlemas Day (February 2) winter would stick around for another 6 weeks. However, if the sky was cloudy, spring would make an early appearance.
Hedgehog Day, itself, dates back to Roman times when the fate of spring was decided by hedgehogs seeing their shadows at night by the light of the moon. Interestingly, about 6 weeks after Groundhog Day is the vernal equinox and the traditional beginning of spring. "
To celebrate Hedgehog/Groundhog Day every year Critter Camp takes a hedgehog over to Pecetonica Elementary School for the kids to touch, observe and learn about.
This year our visit may be postponed due to an expected blizzard!
