Phil
Punxsutawney Phil is a groundhog resident of Punxsutawney,
Pennsylvania. On February 2 (Groundhog Day) of each year, the town of
Punxsutawney celebrates the beloved groundhog with a festive atmosphere
of music and food. During the ceremony, which begins well before the
winter sunrise, Phil emerges from his temporary home on Gobbler's Knob,
located in a rural area about 2 miles (3.2 km) east of town. According to the
tradition, if Phil sees his shadow and returns to his hole, he has predicted
six more weeks of winter. If Phil does not see his shadow, he has predicted
an early spring. The date of Phil's prognostication is known as
Groundhog
Day in the United States and Canada. He is considered to be the world's
most famous prognosticating rodent. During the rest of the year, Phil lives
in the town library with his "wife" Phyllis.

A select group, called the Inner Circle, takes care of Phil year-round and
also plans the annual ceremony. Members of the Inner Circle are
recognizable by their top hats and tuxedos. As of 2011, Phil has two
co-handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths.

Groundhogs day the movie
Zoological data suggest that groundhogs have an average lifespan of ten years in captivity and six years in the wild, with a
maximum lifespan of 14 years in captivity documented.[3] Punxsutawney Phil fans say that there is only one Phil (all the other
groundhog weathermen are impostors), and that he has made weather prognostications for over 121 years as of 2011. They
say that every summer, Phil is given a sip of the mysterious Groundhog Elixir, which magically lengthens his life for seven
years. This is done by Inner Circle members.[4] According to the Groundhog Club, Phil, after making the prediction, speaks to
the Club President in "Groundhogese", which only the current president can understand, and then his prediction is translated
for the entire world.

The Groundhog Day celebration is rooted in a German superstition that says if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on Feb.
2, the Pagan holiday of Imbolc, winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow was seen, legend said spring would come early.
The result is decided in advance by 14 members of the Inner Circle, who don tuxedos and top hats for the event.
