February 2nd brings us to one of the most important days of winter…Groundhog Day. The legend of Groundhog Day is actually based on an old Scottish couplet which states: “If Candlemas Day is bright and clear, there’ll be two winters in the year.” On this day groundhogs everywhere are awoken from there slumber to see what we could expect. Six more weeks of winter or is it waning in its presence early to all our delights? The most famous of all grounddogs is Punxsutawney Phil. If you don’t know much about Phil check out the movie “Groundhog Day”. It does a good job in educating us all (while giving us a good laugh). If you haven’t seen it put it on your list.
With that in mind, we will have our own local groundhog awakening on February 2nd right here on Staten Island. The famous Staten Island Chuck is planned to make his official prediction. He resides in the Staten Island Zoo, and it scheduled to make his prediction at 7:30 a.m. What do you think he is going to say? Either way, the ceremony is free to attend, and there will be an optional Breakfast with Staten Island Chuck ($10/adult, $5/child) and a blood drive. Pre-registration is recommended for breakfast; call 718-442-3101 x14 to reserve. Full details are available on the Staten Island Zoo web site. Come celebrate this yearly tradition! Royal Coachman can get you there without any stress!
