Groundhog Day
Friday, February 2nd, 2024, All Day Event
The Prognosticator of Prognosticators, Punxsutawney Phil, will once again appear at sunrise on February 2nd at Gobbler's Knob in the Pennsylvania Wilds to make his annual prediction on the 138th Groundhog Day.
What does a sleepy, furry marmot have to do with seasonal change? According to fans of Punxsutawney Phil, everything! But why?
The story begins with Candlemas, an early Christian holiday where candles were blessed and distributed. Celebrators of the holiday eventually declared clear skies on Candlemas meant a longer winter. The Roman legions, during the conquest of the northern country, brought this tradition to the Germanic tribes who concluded that if the sun made an appearance on Candlemas Day a hedgehog would cast a shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of bad weather or "Second Winter".
Stay tuned to see what Phil predicts!

Mardi Gras
Tuesday, February 13th, 2024, All Day Event
Mardi Gras (French: Fat Tuesday) festive day celebrated in France on Shrove Tuesday (the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday), which marks the close of the pre-Lenten season.

Valentine's Day
Wednesday, February 14th, 2024, All Day Event
What is the real story of Valentine's day? 
Turns out, it was a pretty common name during Late Antiquity. As far as anyone can tell, the Saint Valentine of Valentine's Day was one of two guys preaching the good word in Rome in the third century. One of these two was martyred on February 14th 269, thus giving us the date for his eponymous day.
What does Valentine Day mean to us? 
Valentine's Day is a holiday when lovers express their affection with greetings and gifts. It is also called St. Valentine's Day. The holiday has expanded to express affection between relatives and friends.
We wish you and yours a day filled with love and appreciation!
Presidents' Day
Monday, February 19th, 2024, All Day Event
Although the holiday is most often called “Presidents’ Day", the observed federal holiday is officially called “Washington’s Birthday".
In a sense, calling the holiday Presidents’ Day helps us reflect on not just the first president but also our nation’s founding, its values and what Washington calls in his Farewell Address the “beloved Constitution and union, as received from the Founders". Also, Abraham Lincoln’s birthday is on February 12th, so by calling the holiday ”Presidents’ Day", we can also include another remarkable president in our celebrations.
