Celebrate Groundhog Day!
Celebrate Groundhog Day!

There is only one day during the year that is devoted to rodents. Groundhog Day is a day for all rodents – whether mice, chipmunks or rats – to step up and celebrate. Punxsutawney Phil may be the star of the day, but there are many talented rodents that we all have grown to know and love. To honor rodents everywhere, there are many things you can do to celebrate Groundhog Day this February 2.

Punxsutawney Phil


Groundhog Day always falls on February 2. The popular myth is, if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow at Gobblers Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania on the morning of Groundhog Day, Phil will go back in his hole, and we'll have six more weeks of winter. If it's cloudy outside, and he doesn't see his shadow, spring will come early.

Mickey Mouse


This Groundhog Day, tune into the Disney Channel to see the most famous rodent of all - Mickey Mouse! Mickey has become an icon for The Walt Disney Company. He was created in 1928 by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks and voiced by Walt Disney. The Walt Disney Company celebrates his birth as November 18, 1928, when the Steamboat Willie cartoon was released, even though Mickey had already appeared six months earlier in Plane Crazy (maybe because Steamboat Willie was the first Mickey Mouse Cartoon with sound). Since then, Mickey’s become one of the most recognizable symbols in the world. You could say he’s the big cheese!

Groundhog Day Movies


If you haven’t seen the film Groundhog Day starring comedian b>Bill Murray, February 2 is the perfect date to watch it! Or, if you’re more into animation, check out Pixar’s Ratatouille, about Remy, a young, ambitious rat who longs to be a top chef – and goes through all sorts of trouble to achieve his dream!

Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Squeakuel Video Game


Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel brings the world’s smallest and most mischievous musical acts to Nintendo Wii/DS. The video game lets you play as either Alvin And The Chipmunks or their girl-group rivals, The Chipettes, in a variety of pulse-pounding concert locations that will challenge your rhythmic skills to the limit.

Do You Believe in Groundhog Day?

  • Yes. I think the seasons change - or don't - because of groundhogs.
  • No. It's just a silly old wives tale.
  • I'm not sure.
  • I believe in Groundhog's Day only if it means an early spring!

Well, I'm not sure if any of you knew, (I might have told Alpha T, but I don't remember if I did) there was an incident which happened at our school. I was a few doors away when it happened, but a person, who was in her class, stabbed a teacher, who I knew and loved, in front of a group of seniors getting ready for their GCSE's. I remember the screaming and commotion caused as she screamed for her pupils to get out. A girl came into my class, screaming that Mrs Maguire had been stabbed.  We saw our teacher rush out of the room.  That day, we were escorted to lessons by teachers. We weren't allowed to go anywhere unless a teacher told us... We were made to stay at the school the whole day, and we were all so worried. Mrs Maguire was a well lived teacher you see. The teachers told us that an 'incident occurred' and we shouldn't worry. The general public knew she died before us... The press were all over the outside of the school, taking photos of us...  (I don't wanna stray too far from the topic) but the guy who did it does deserve the death penalty. I don't care what the cost is and I don't quite care if I'm honest. He killed a teacher that I knew and loved, and I'm sure you would agree that you'd feel the same in that situation... I do. He only got 20 years, (which is apparently life here in the UK.) :angry
