Groundhog Day Home Page

"Rise and shine, campers, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today . . ."

In response to popular demand, I am proud to present the original Groundhog Day home page. Anything different is good. This page is dedicated to information about the Harold Ramis film "Groundhog Day" and the actual day itself in relation to the town of Punxsutawney, home of the nation's oldest groundhog festival.

The Film "Groundhog Day"

I have attempted to provide some tidbits, juicy facts, and rumors about 'Groundhog Day' in this section. Such casual treatment of this opus is almost akin to making a mockery of its richness and depth, but I hope that the benefits outweigh any possible sacreligious overtones.

Stuff about the movie.

The Town of Punxsutawney

The movie "Groundhog Day" was based upon the events that occur in Punxsutawney every year on February 2nd. I had the distinct priviledge of travelling to Punxsutawney this year to witness the festivities myself.

Links to Other Groundhog Day Pages

I recently had a crash and lost a couple of links, sorry

The official Groundhog Day page. A little dry.

Jason Patton's Groundhog Day page

David Lavery's Groundhog Day Essay is a clever, in-depth analysis of the beloved movie, complete with a Nietzsche quote and a list of works cited.

The Zen Unbound May issue has a terrific analysis of Groundhog Day from a Buddhist perspective, as well as a wacky piece on Ned Ryerson.

Weimer's Groundhog Day page

A wacky biblical interpretation of the film. This one ya gotta see.

Another Groundhog Day page, more the day than the movie.

Check out the Internet Movie Database Team's Groundhog Day Film page.


By no means am I a complete authority on the day, Punxsutawney, or the movie, so please email me any info you have.

Thanks To
