It’s Groundhog Day, but don’t put too much stock in what Punxsutawney Phil says about when springtime will arrive.  He’s only been right 39% of the time.  You’d be better off flipping a coin. Ironically what PETA would rather we do. But his prediction this year was:

EARLY SPRING (Again he might not be accurate a lot but I am totally in for this! Thanks Phil)

Some fun facts:

A survey by National Today reveals that 3% of people have used Groundhog Day an an excuse not to go to work. 

– 50% of Americans don’t know when Groundhog Day actually is.

– 11% of Americans don’t understand what Groundhog Day is.

– 24% of people have never seen a real groundhog.
