When I went to college way back in the early 1990’s the big technological advancement was having our own voicemail accounts on the phones in our dorm rooms. It was fun to leave silly messages for one another and periodically these were forwarded around as chainmails. My sophomore year I received a message in which some fellow student announced that he’d written the first Groundhog’s Day carol. I’ll never know who he was but to this day I recall the lyrics.
It’s Groundhogs Day, it’s Groundhog’s Day,
What the hell’s the matter?
We celebrate a holiday
for some fat rodent’s shadda!
So in tribute to Groundhog’s Day and this anonymous songwriter, let us all sing this carol together. We may get six more weeks of winter, but it hasn’t really felt like winter yet anyway.
