Yesterday the world (at least Canada and the US) celebrated Groundhog Day, which is the day the groundhogs (or marmots) come out of their holes and have a look around. If they can see their shadow, it means that it will be winter for six more weeks. If there is no shadow, spring is right around the corner.
In the old European tradition a bear or a badger was used for these predictions, but of course The Great Boll would rather there was a Hedgehog day celebration instead. Here are some photos of Bollan meeting some real hedgehogs in the wild, an event in itself worth celebrating :)
Happy Hedgehog Day! :)
