Today the largest Groundhog Day celebration is held in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where as many as 40,000 people gather to see the groundhog. German immigrants started the holiday in Pennsylvania in 1887. Their inspiration for the day came from the Candlemas tradition in Europe. Candlemas was a major celebration in northern Europe, particularly in France, Germany, England, Scotland, and Switzerland. Today, Candlemas is also known as the Feast of the Presentation of our Lord, or the Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It chiefly celebrates the presentation of Jesus Christ in the temple in Jerusalem, 40 days after his birth. The holiday is celebrated in the Anglican, Methodist, Orthodox, and Lutheran Churches.⁠
⁠Historically, it has been celebrated since the 4th Century in Jerusalem.⁠Traditionally, Candlemas celebrations would begin in a darkened church with people lighting candles from a single flame.⁠

As for the beautiful illustration by Brianna Ashby, Bill Murray was raised in an Irish Catholic family. The middle child of nine — and the brother of a nun — he speaks of Catholicism with intimacy and affection many Catholics appreciate - We sure love his performance in 1993, Groundhog Day directed by Harold Ramis.⁠
