Every February the country anxiously looks toward Punxsutawney, PA in hopes of predicting the near future. I am talking about Phil, the famous groundhog and his infamous shadow. Will he see it, or will we have any early spring? We will soon find out this Tuesday. But unless you live within 50 miles or so of good ol' Punxsutawney, chances are this underappreciated holiday is barely on your radar. For shame, I say. Why not embrace it as an excuse to celebrate the whimsy in life? And where can you find whimsical, celebratory Groundhog Day supplies? Why, Etsy of course.
