Monday, February 2nd, 2015 is a special day!
Do you know why?
Groundhog Day is celebrated every year on the 2nd of February and was first celebrted in a little town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania in 1887.
This special groundhog is my Uncle Punxsutawney Phil!
On February 2nd he makes a weather prediction . . . Will spring arrive early? OR Will there be six more weeks of winter?
We will find out when Uncle Phil comes out of his burrow!
Do you know that February 2nd, 2015 is also another special day?
It is Punxsutawney Phyllis Day!
Ten years ago, a book about ME was written by Susanna Leonard-Hill.
Susanna is hosting a Birthday Bonanza for ME! You and my writerly friends, authors and illustrators are invited to celebrate my tenth birthday.
In honor of my birthday, Suzy Leopold is celebrating ME with a Haiku Poem . . .
Phyllis is my name!
A special groundhog I am!
Celebrate my tenth!
Check out this video of ME, Phyllis, as I read the Haiku Poem that Suzy wrote:
And one more poem, Suzy wrote for me. It is a Limerick Poem . . .
To you Phyllis, the birthday girl: I celebrate your tenth with this silly ode.
During the last decade, it was hoped for a predictionof an early spring, however it just snowed.
Every year you attempted to bring an early spring our way; thank you for the efforts you continued to show.
Boys and girls everywhere were ready to play outdoors under the sun.
Riding bikes and playing hide and go seek would be so much fun.
However, once again, winter continues to linger,so it must be time for me to find a new zip code.
Come join ME for some chocolate cake at my Birthday Bonanza.
You can find out more about this contest and author Susanna Leonard Hill at her web site and blog spot.
Happy Birthday Phyllis!
