How do you feel about Groundhog’s Day?

It's sorta funny, but mostly useless.

When I was a teen - it was an anniversary date with a boyfriend. And when I was pregnant with my second son, I was having heavy contractions that day and I did not want my son born that day. I had him 2 weeks later on President's Day. A day shy of Valentine's Day.

I think it is superstitious nonsense

It was an interesting concept, and Bill Murray and Chris Elliot are really funny in it. But it is one of those films you can't watch too often.

Is the question about the calendar or the movie? I've never seen the movie, but have noted that "Groundhog's Day" has become a widely understood metaphor for living a looped life. As for February 2, I'm very fond of the date. Groundhog's Day, Candlemas Day, Lady Day or Imbole marks the halfway point of winter in the northern hemisphere. Weather and health permitting, I always clip forsythia for forcing on February 2 and start looking for my snowdrops which
usually bloom in that week.

I think it is an amusing holiday.

It's meaningless. We always have six more weeks of winter in Michigan, regardless of whether the groundhog sees his shadow or not. As for the movie, I haven't seen it, but I hear it's good.

Um. . .it's kind of cool. . .I don't have any really strong feelings about it. . .

I think it's a a great movie. Wouldn't you like to do things over to get them right.

It's a terrible film, that's all I know about it.

Biggest Holiday of the year. Easily, even bigger than Halloween.

That's sort of asking how I feel about the Earth's gravitational pull...I don't.
