PLAN FOR WINTER TO LAST FOR 6 MORE WEEKS!

2 Feb

Happy Groundhog DayThe world’s most famous groundhog saw his shadow this morning, predicting winter will last for six more weeks (sigh).

What is Groundhog Day all about? Well, if you haven’t seen the movie, Goundhog Day with Bill Murray, today is the day to rent it! It is one of the funniest movies about this special February holiday! Anyway ….The annual ritual takes place on Gobbler’s Knob, a tiny hill in Punxsutawney, a borough of about 6,100 residents some 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

According to German superstition, if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on Feb. 2 — the Christian holiday of Candlemas — winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow was seen, legend said spring would come early. Since 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 97 times, hasn’t seen it 15 times, and there are no records for nine years, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.

Sorry for all of you brides & grooms that wanted spring to come early for your big day! If your planning on getting married in the next six weeks, you should plan for some cold weather on your big day! Some things to plan for:

·                A Winter White Coat to keep you warm: http://budgetdreams.files.wordpress.com/2006/06/brud_4040_snowdrop_front_stor.jpg

·                Pictures planned for in the snow: http://www.thebrideandgroom.com/wedding_picture/picture/2101/full/Three-Winks-Studio-03.jpg

·                Some heaters if your venue gets on the chilly side.

·                Hand heaters for you and your guest. This makes a nice end-of-night favor!

·                A hot chocolate, cider & coffee bar to keep everyone warm and having a good time!

Whether winter will last for six more weeks or spring will surprise us with an early arrival… you can plan and adjust your big day for the weather. Share your ideas with us on how to survive a winter wedding!
