Happy Groundhogs Day!

How the tradition of watching whether a groundhog/woodchuck (same animal) sees it shadow on February 2 got started, I have no idea.

Tomorrow is St. Blaise's feast day. He's the patron saint of throat ailments. I forgot to get my throat blessed this time last year and ended up with laryngitis in May. This year, I made sure to get it blessed at Mass last Saturday.

I'm countin' on you, Blaise.
