Groundhog Day. Something that was an idea concocted by boozed up farmers years ago in PA. Punxy (Punxetawney) is a town along near I-80 in PA. Not all that far from State College (Penn State for all you non-PA residents). Its about a couple of hours from me.
The day used to be a blast. Past few years they have toned it down. I was there a couple of years in a row back in the late 70's. Basically, was a big booze party. Drunken young adults would fall down the snow covered hill.
Kind of a pre-spring break party.
