In Pennsylvania the Groundhog Day is celebrated the most. Phil, a groundhog, saw his shadow this year. Phil saw his shadow ninty-nine times and didn't see his shadow fifteen times. If he sees his shadow, then there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn't see his shadow, then spring will start early and there won't be six weeks left of winter. Even if he sees his shadow or not, there will still be six more weeks of winter left.
I think that Groundhog Day is for winter and not just to see a groundhog and having fun. Groundhog Day is helpful for finding out if there is winter left or not. Groundhog Day is fun at school because it is Jojo's birthday.
