Here in America (and in Canada) we have a weird tradition... It's called Groundhog's Day. Once a year... on February 2nd, Punxsutawney Phil pops out of his hole and predicts the weather. If he sees his shadow then we will have 6 more weeks of winter.
Of course we WILL have 6 more weeks of winter... good thing I am going to California.
What weird holidays do you celebrate in your country?
