Good news for those affected by the historic polar vortex that hit most of the northern United States this week: Punxsutawney Phil, the world's most famous groundhog, did not see his own shadow, predicting an early spring, officials deemed. In one study done by the Washington Post, over a 30-year span, the groundhog (and his descendants) were technically correct more years than not, but it really depended on which part of the country was being examined.
For a groundhog, Phil is surprisingly accurate.
In 1886, Groundhog Day first appeared in the Punxsutawney newspaper, but there is no record of his prediction.
Born of a winter festival called Candlemas Day, the celebration found churchgoers bringing candles to be blessed. The Pennsylvanian German folk had to work with their surroundings, and so they decided on the groundhog to replace the traditional European animals.
Regardless of this year's prediction, it may be worth noting that despite his reputation Punxsutawney Phil does not have the strongest track record for accurately predicting the weather.
