A roundup of 12 Groundhog day fun food ideas
For those elsewhere in the world, Groundhog Day is an American “holiday” (using that term loosely) that falls on February 2nd, during which we are given the definitive answer as to whether or not winter will continue for six more weeks or spring will arrive early. It’s based on a scientific analysis of weather patterns… nah, just kidding. It’s based on the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog pops up on this day and is startled by his shadow, he escapes back underground for six more weeks of winter. The most popular celebration takes place in Punxsutawney in central Pennsylvania. They do it up pretty big there.
I’m not so sure it’s a big enough celebration to justify a roundup of fun food ideas, but it is a fun and bizarre day to explain to the kids (with fun food?) and these are great ideas for classroom parties, too.
