Groundhog Day groundhog wedding

Today is Groundhog Day - a day when an animal is pulled out of his home, and he tells the humans about the weather forecast. I don't understand it, but I do like the movie despite the fact that it is terribly depressing.

Here's a picture from the 1952 wedding of Sir No-Talk-In-Sleep and Miss Sleep-All-Winter.

That's right, a groundhog wedding, not a groundhog day wedding. The groundhog wedding was held on January 31, 1952 in response to a feud between Punxsutawney Phil in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and Jimmie the Groundhog in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. A Punxsutawney newspaper declared Sun Prairie to be a "remote two-cow village buried somewhere in the wilderness" and in response Sun Prairie declared itself the Groundhog Capital of the World. Did you know there was a groundhog feud? Now you can fill in those awkward silences at parties where you're forced to interact with friends-of-friends, and cement your reputation as so-and-so's weird friend.

No wedding would be complete without dessert, so here's something sweet to finish with - adorable Groundhog wedding cookies! Who can resist small animals in formalwear?

I can't find too much information about them, but they are cookies from Desert 1st's Photobucket account. I'd love to add the proper source, so if you know, please forward me the information.

Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day again!
