I think my older brother was in kindergarten the year he decided to have a Groundhog’s Day party. On February 1st, he called up one of our grandmothers and invited her over. She came the next day, along with several of her daughters. I don’t think we did anything specifically related to groundhogs, but it was an excuse to get together.
I told my son this story and he was ready to call up his grandpa and invite him to a Groundhog’s Day party. Too bad we live so far away (and grandpa is so tied down with dairy farming.)
