>So… why do we do it?

Why would we treat February 2nd like a holiday and claim that a smallish rodent can predict the next six weeks of weather?


My opinion – Its simply to break up the montany that threatens to invade and conquer the day.
But we mustn’t let it! Today is an adventure if you’re willing to take it.

I’m reading George MacDonald’s “Phantastes” for a class (which will receive a blog post entirely for itself) and a great line in it from the main character,

“I sat a long time unwilling to go;
but my unfinished story urged me on.
I must act and wander.”

To celebrate this odd and unusual holiday – I host an annual pancake feed (since I am in college this will be held at 8:30pm).

Take that demon of monotany!
