ITS GROUNDHOG DAY!!!!

every year when groundhog day (GHD) rolls around i find myself with a smile. i think it's that i'm reminded fondly of the years i spent in grade school and the grand GHD parade/events that we would celebrate on this day. it was wonderful! there were floats made by each grade level where the GHD day prince & princess would ride, the band would play, sixth graders did a special groundhog hop dance around the gym (basically the bunny hop, but a HUGE right of passage once you arrived at that grade level) and most importantly it was an assembly so you missed class. what a great time, what great memories.

i also recall on this day a very funny Bill Murray classic, Groundhog Day. its my mission each GHD to find it playing on basic cable and watch it. still laughing, after all these years, at the same stuff!

enjoy your GHD 2009!

I'm so glad to know that Kentunckians celebrate this wonderful day! There wasn't ONE mention of it this year or last year in my school in Oregon. They are missing out!

I can't believe it was a whole school celebration with a parade, though! Too funny.
