When I was younger I didn’t really understand what Groundhog Day was all about. I just knew we celebrated it and people were usually mad about more weeks of Winter or cheering for an early Spring. Coloring these Groundhog coloring pages together gives you a chance to start talking about what this holiday is all about and what it means when the groundhog sees his shadow or doesn’t. It is a great way to talk and connect with your child.
History of Groundhog Day
Groundhog Day is on February 2nd. People come to Pennsylvania every year to see if the groundhog will see his shadow. If it’s a sunny day and Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, then there will be six more weeks of Winter. If it’s a cloudy day and he doesn’t see his shadow, then warmer temperatures are on their way with an early Spring. Studies have shown that there isn’t really a correlation between his shadow and the weather, but it is still a fun tradition that we look forward to.
