This year has been tough and for many just terrible. Everyone has been impacted in one way or another. So much has happened and it’s hard to keep up with it. Just ask our friends and neighbors how life has changed. COVID and all that goes with it have worn on us all and taken the lives of so many. Cultural and political upheaval are changing life in our neighborhoods and the world.
My friends, there have been so many other things that have challenged us and I am thinking we are just trying to survive and hope one day to thrive again. In the coming year be good to yourself, your friends, your community because we need 2022 to be better than the previous two years.
It is December once again. This time of family, friends and festivities comes around only one time a year. Let’s see what it holds for us all. Enjoy the month my friends. Get ready for a new year ahead.
Groundhog Day each year falls on February 2 in the United States, coinciding with Candlemas. It is a part of popular culture among many Americans and it centers on the idea of the groundhog coming out of its home to “predict” the weather.
Groundhog Day is a popular observance in many parts of the United States. Although some states have in some cases adopted their own groundhogs, the official groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, lives at Gobbler’s Knob near Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. The town has attracted thousands of visitors over the years to experience various Groundhog Day events and activities (From TimeandDate.com).
