Groundhog's Day Coloring Pages

The Groundhog's Story

Welcome to our Groundhog Day coloring pages. As holidays go, this one is a little under ground....(joke) is however, a uniquely American "holiday".
Actually, it's not a holiday at all, it's more a day of celebration of an "urban legend" that most Americans really consider quite silly, .....but we like it anyway!

  • The Groundhog's Day "holiday" occurs every February 2nd, and many people are quite"curious" about what the groundhog "sees". According to legend: "It is the day that the Groundhog comes out of his hole after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow.
    - If the day is sunny and he sees his shadow, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his hole.
    - If the day is cloudy and he therefore cannot see his own shadow, he takes it as an omen of spring arriving soon and stays above ground.

    Perhaps the most famous Groundhog is known as "Punxsutawney Phil" who lives at Gobblers Knob. and has been know to the earliest settlers of Pennsylvania's town of Punxsutawney for many years. Each year the town of Punxsutawney has held a Groundhog Day celebration since the mid 1800s. The first official trek to Gobbler's Knob (to get the annual forecast) began on February 2, 1887. A movie was made featuring this famous groundhog and the annual festival, its FUN !

    Also, it is a little know fact that there have been many Great Americans born on this very special day, and one (that we know of) lives in Tennessee!
