The technical 25th anniversary of the release of Groundhog Day isn't until the 12th, but we might as well start today. Favorite lines? YouTube clips?

CGP Grey on the holiday (again, call it a time loop)

Your Amazing Thing to Learn Today is that Groundhog Day coincides with the Gaelic festival of Imbolc, yet another Christianized Pagan holiday.

Furthermore, today I finally found out what the definition of "early spring" is, thanks to Wikipedia. If a majority of days between Groundhog Day and the Spring Equinox reach 40 degF (4 degC), it's an early spring.
