今天(2月2号)是土拨鼠日(Groundhog Day),北美地区的一个传统节日。每年的2月2日,美国和加拿大许多城市和村庄都会庆祝。自从1887年以来,一代又一代的土拨鼠一直担负着预报时令的任务。根据传说,如果土拨鼠能看到它自己的影子,那么北美的冬天还有6个星期才会结束。如果它看不到影子,春天不久就会来临。

土拨鼠日最大的盛会是在美国宾夕凡尼亚州的苏托尼(Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania),由当地最著名的天气预测土拨鼠费尔(Phil)公布天气预测结果。今年,费尔预计冬天还有六周时间,它还告诉大家:“今年冬季过后,您将看到一个最美丽,最灿烂的春天!”


Here Ye, Here Ye, Here ye

Now this second day of February, two thousand and twenty-one, the one hundred and thirty fifth annual trek of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club…

Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Seers, the Prognosticator of all Prognosticators, was awakened from his borrow at 7:25 am by his handler and friend, on this quite morning where few can attend.

In Groundhogese, Phil directed the President and the Inner Circle to his prediction scroll that reads.

It is a beautiful morning this I can see,

With all my fans viewing virtually.

With my faithful followers being safe and secure,

Our tradition of Groundhog Day must endure.

We all have passed through the darkness of night,

But now see hope of morning’s bright light. 

When I turn to see, there is a perfect shadow cast of me. 

Six more weeks of winter there will be!
