Groundhog Day 2011

Feb 01, 2011

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!

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!

Explanation: Hoshi was best friends with the moon girl, Sina who secretly loved him but they drifted apart when Hoshi met Dimitre, a Russian boy. He hung out with Dimitre more and they both fell in love with each other. However, Sina was jealous and so she got Cira, the sun girl, who was in love with Dimitre to distract him and hang out with him. Dimitre was too kind to reject her so he just hung out with her. In the shadows, Sina was bullying and threatening Hoshi not to meet with Dimitre because if he did she would hurt Dimitre. One day Hoshi couldn't handle it and so he ran to find Dimitre after school. He saw Dimitre and went towards him only to get hit by a car. Dimitre saw Hoshi lying on the floor and rushed towards him and hugged him while Hoshi slowly died in his arms. Dimitre never got over his death after that point.

There once was a boy named Hoshi. Just like his name his smile was as bright as the stars in the sky. One day he met another boy who's eyes were a mixture of the aqua ocean and green land, Earth. His name was Dimitre and he came from a far away land. They fell hard for each other. Their love stronger than anything in the galaxy. The star left the moon's side to join hands with the earth in their journey of love. But a girl carrying a name that meant the moon felt jealous. Jealous of the stars love for the Earth. She wanted to make it so that Hoshi could never meet Dimitre again, and with the help of another girl with her sun-kissed hair, the star could never see the Earth. The sun would blind the Earth so much that he couldn't see Hoshi who would shine brightly with teary eyes, and then when the sun would go to sleep so did the Earth, and only the stars would feel pain. Months went by and Hoshi's heart only broke harder and harder until a plan popped in his brain. The star, lost and all alone, cut off the wings that allowed him to shine and he fell out of the sky with hot fiery pain. Dimitre saw Hoshi in his hurt and painful state and embraced him. They could finally be together. Only for a brief moment, until Hoshi could feel himself slip into a deep sleep wrapped in Dimitre's arms. The star had gone out, and had left a gaping hole in the Earth's heart that could never be filled.

I appreciate it, but that doesn't help my conscience.  To me, you're practically saying "if one of us dies, that's okay because there are still plenty of other humans all around the world".  I don't put other animals above us, of course, but they still exist.  Anyway, good day.  Enjoy this egg's before  [s:p/1n9v] and after  [s:p/1n7e] because I'm not sure how to say "good day" without sounding sarcastic.
