Saturday is Groundhog Day, and not just because the news makes us feel like we're stuck in a never-ending loop of awfulness.  It's February 2nd, which literally means it's Groundhog Day.

We've searched and gather all kinds of info on this specail day, here are some results.  Oh, you might be surprised at how seriously some people take it.

1.  4.2% of people believe the groundhog ALWAYS gets his prediction right, and almost one out of five think he's right at least two-thirds of the time.  He's not, by the way....he's only about 39% accurate, which is worse than a coin flip.

2.  6% of people watch the movie "Groundhog Day" every year to celebrate.

3.  1% have traveled to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to watch the groundhog ceremony.

4.  And 4% of people say Groundhog Day is one of their favorite holidays. 

As for this year, 67% of people predicted Punxsutawney Phil would see his shadow, which means six more weeks of winter.  What are you wishing for?
