It’s Groundhog Day in the US. On the 2 February, throughout Pennsylvania (according to folklore) Groundhogs are able to forecast whether locals can look forward to an early spring or if they’ll have to knuckle down for another six weeks of winter.
The most famous town that celebrates the event is Punxsutawney. It hit the headlines after featuring in the 1993 film Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, which imagined what would happen if you had to relive the same day, over and over again.
The event is catching on in the UK too. Brands including Pizza Express and Sky are celebrating the day on Twitter by sharing clips from the film and PR stunts that use the hashtag #GroundhogDay.
