(February 02) Today we’re celebrating . . .  Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day
Folklore has it that if a groundhog sees its shadow today there will be 6 more weeks of winter. If not, and we’re lucky, it’ll be an early spring.

the European Celts believed that animals had certain supernatural powers on special days that were half-way between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. Folklore from Germany and France indicated that when marmots and bears came out of their winter dens too early, they were frightened by their shadow and retreated back inside for four to six weeks*…

Another possible inspiration for Groundhog Day is the Roman celebration of Hedgehog Day. A day in which Romans believed a hedgehog seeing its shadow would also forecast 6 more weeks of winter.

Famous US groundhogs: Punxsutawney Phil, Staten Island Chuck, Wiarton Willie, Shubenacadie Sam and General Beauregard Lee

National Tooth Fairy Day
I know its been a while, but can you remember back to the first time your teeth fell out? Ahhh, the joy. The innocence. That exciting jingle of change, those sweet crisp bills, and the blind faith that your piggy bank would just keep growing each time you left one of your teeth under your pillow. What bliss!

Well today lets give a shout out to our favorite fairy. For no one does the dental nightshift quite like that fairy we call Tooth.

Lets be honest, nothings better than getting to go to work in your PJs. And not having to leave the house on a cold, wet and snowy day – priceless!

This is the week for promoting the benefits of telecommuting; whether it benefits you, your family, or your employer, telecommuting can be a “win-win” situation for everyone involved.
