Countdown to Groundhog Day and Imbolg!

Well, it may still only be the month of January, but all of us 'witchy cats' here at "Witch Cats Blog" are already counting down the days before we get to once again see our favorite groundhog here in Pennsylvania, "Punxsutawney Phil!"

Almost every part of the country and/or world has their own unique version of the Groundhog and celebration which lands on February 2nd of each year and also happens to be the very same day as our Imbolg/Imbolc/Candlemas sabbat.

Groundhog Day is so poplular here in PA, that I would be terribly remiss for not mentioning two of our more local weather predicting prognosticating groundhogs, "Shoey Louie" (from Shoemakersville, PA) and "Pagoda Patty" (who makes her live appearance from The Reading Pagoda in downtown Reading, PA). And let us not forget Canada's Wiarton Willie and  Winnipeg Willow!

  1. I can't wait for the Groundhog day and I'm really hoping the little fella will have some good news! Can't wait to start planting in my garden again. :) Nice to meet you!
