When my husband and I were dating, I discovered that he disliked and disparaged Valentine’s Day. Very disappointing to a newly dating girlfriend. He did have the odd affection for Groundhog’s Day, and chose to celebrate that instead. We were the only family out to dinner for the groundhog and staying in for the holiday of hearts.
He thought it was pretty cool that one of my closest college friends grew up visiting Punxsutawney often where her grandparents lived. It’s still a big deal in her family, as evidenced by her Facebook now that we’ve reconnected.
One of my favorite movies of all time is Groundhog’s Day with Bill Murray and Andie McDowell.
Pop culturally, one of my favorite episodes of Supernatural is Mystery Spot which plays on the same theme as the movie, relegating Sam Winchester to relive his Tuesday over and over again.
