Six More Weeks of Winter? A Happy Groundhog Day Chinese Flashcard!

Happy Friday everyone! So as many of you likely know by now,  Punxsutawney Phil, the world’s most famous groundhog, has seen his shadow! According to folklore, this means that we can expect another six weeks of winter. We don’t know how much we really buy into this old tradition, but we do think it’s fun to wonder! But regardless of whether or not Phil saw his shadow, we thought making a groundhog flashcard would be a great way to commemorate the day. So here is our groundhog, and today our flashcard vocabulary word is in Chinese. The Chinese word for groundhog is 土拨鼠, pronounced tǔ bō shǔ.  So are we really in for six more weeks of cold weather? Where we are in Germany, the weather is actually getting warmer, so we certainly hope that there are no more cold winter surprises in store for us! What do you think about the groundhog tradition? Fact or fiction? Either way, we hope that wherever you are that you enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend. Until next week!
