Groundhog Day!

As personal tradition insists, today I must mention, at every possible relevant opportunity, that my grandfather lived near Punxatawney and that indeed, I once went shopping at the Jamesway that used to be there when I was a kid. Not that I remember the trip, or anything about Punxy, but I do remember the grey coveralls with rainbow hearts on them.

Honestly, I like Groundhog Day. There are no Socially Mandated gifts to buy, no drinking culture. And isn't February 2 Lammas/Candlemas? I could totally get behind making it a small weird family holiday, marked with some special food and some stories or poems looking ahead to spring.
