Every Friday, I’ll post thought provoking discussion starters.

Tomorrow is “Groundhog Day.” The tradition, started in Punxsutawney, PA, in 1887. You know that if the groundhog sees his shadow after emerging from his hole after his period of hibernation, we’ll have six more weeks of bad weather. Spring will be around the corner if it’s a cloudy day and the groundhog can’t see his shadow.

The US National Climatic Data Center estimates that Punxsutawney Phil, the most famous groundhog, is correct only about 40% of the time. So, why do we still pay attention to Groundhog Day?
