Groundhog Day

February 2nd is known as Groundhog Day! The day when the groundhog sticks his head out to see if he can see his shadow or not. Today, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, meaning Spring comes early! Not complaining about that! A movie by the name of Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray in the year 1993. The story of a cynical meteorologist who ends up repeating the same day over and over again.

We are introduced to Phil Connors (Murray) who is assigned to follow the story of Groundhog Day in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Not really happy about this assignment of covering the festivities, he and his team find themselves stuck there overnight due to a blizzard. However, Phil wakes up the next morning to finding himself repeating the same day over again. With only him knowing of the time loop they are in, Phil decides to take advantage of the situation with partaking in crimes and felonies without having to worry about the consequence. However, as time goes on Phil becomes depressed and goes to extreme measures to break the time loop they are in. But, none of this works to Phil’s shock and anger. Will Phil be able to get out of the time loop with what he has learned from repeating the same day over again?

Groundhog Day is quite the funny movie despite all the drama that Phil goes through to break the time loop. There is not much that you can do but laugh until Phil finally learns a thing or two. Groundhog Day was celebrated today in America to the delight of many people because the furry rodent did not see his shadow, meaning Spring is coming soon. Happy Groundhog Day everyone!
