- Groundhog Day
February 2 is the day that famous groundhogs across Canada are supposed to pop put of their burrows and forecast the number of days until spring. According to legend, if the area's groundhog sees his shadow and scurries back down into his burrow then winter will continue for six more weeks, which is not bad by Canada's standards. If he does not see his shadow and stays outside to sniff around, then winter is almost over.
