Sam Seaborn: We jumped out from behind bushes while the British came down the road in their bright red jackets, but never has a war been so courteously declared. It was on parchment with calligraphy, and “Your Highness, we beseech you on this day in Philadelphia to bite me, if you please.”
do other countries have a groundhog day? do you all gather on February second and watch with bated breathe as a groundhog emerges from its hole? do you forecast the next six weeks of weather based on if the groundhog is frightened by its own shadow and returns to the hole?
is this some kind of thing American tumblr made up to prank us??
groundhog day is real the entire country watches a groundhog predict the weather
But not just any groundhog - no, that would be too easy.
We have specific groundhogs that are responsible for weather prediction in particular regions.
We give them names like Phil and Jimmy, and make their caretakers wear formal dress, like servants to royalty.
When two nearby towns have groundhogs, it becomes a point of civic pride to argue about whose groundhog is more accurate. People have come to blows to defend their groundhog’s honour.
And of course, since groundhogs don’t live very long, they need to be replaced frequently. Sometimes people will claim that the new groundhog isn’t a legitimate successor to the old groundhog, and set up their own pretender to the throne. There have been legitimate groundhog succession crises.
Tell everyone you see today that you will see them in a year. They’ll laugh and assume that you mean you will see them tomorrow. Little do they know at midnight, you will leave society behind to live in the woods for 365 days. Seek solitude. Seek peace.
