In the United  States and Canada, people celebrate Groundhog Day on 2nd February annually. This day has historical folks behind it. Folks say that if the weather is cloudy, a groundhog comes out from its burrow and the spring comes early that year. Instead, the sunny sky symbolizes that the winter will be six weeks lengthier than usual. However, at present,   people celebrate this holiday through early morning festivals to watch the groundhog coming out of its burrow.
