I just love the name of this punch especially because tomorrow is the Groundhog Day. To celebrate I’m sharing a few facts about the unofficial Holiday and a yummy punch that is easy to make for the winter celebration!
Facts About Groundhogs Day
The tradition of Groundhog Day was brought over by German immigrants to the U.S. in 1887. The town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania on February 2 is where the official groundhog lives and forecast the shadow. Groundhog Day is not an official holiday however many celebrate it throughout the United States. I can remember as a child in grade school in the late 1970’s wearing a Punxsutawney Phil hat and shirt to school to celebrate. My Dad love traveling across Ohio to Pennsylvania to tour all the really cool historic state parks. I can remember driving through the town of Punxsutawney.
