Happy Groundhog Day everyone!!

Fun Fact: Did you know groundhogs are also known as woodchucks?

Do you remember this fun little ditty from childhood,

“How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? A woodchuck would chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”

My brother taught me that. I’m sure we sung that so much that my Mom was tired of it and sent us outside to play. Hahaha!

I’d love to hear your favorite memories of Groundhog Day as a child or current memories you are making with your own children or grandchildren. Share them in the comments!

  1. Some awesome facts, thanks! I always think they look a bit like a gopher (or prairie dog), just bigger. Many people in other countries have no idea about Groundhog Day. It is fun and very North American.
