Groundhog Day is a funny US holiday. Groundhogs are little animals that live underground. If a groundhog comes out of its den on this day and it is cloudy, spring will come soon. If it is sunny, winter will last for six more weeks. The most famous groundhog is Punxsutawney Phil from Punxsutawney [ˌpəŋ ksəˈto:ni:], Pennsylvania.

What does this mean?

sunny  – There will be six more weeks of winter weather.

cloudy – There will be spring weather.
