Many people have been using it to describe lockdown - but today is actually Groundhog Day.

It's a tradition in Pennsylvania where a groundhog comes out of its burrow on the 2nd of February every year to predict the weather for the next 6 months.

It normally attracts large crowds, but because of the pandemic, it's being broadcast online instead.

Tradition says the rodent - called Punxsutawney Phil - can predict how long winter will last.

A 1990s film of the same name, starring Bill Murray, shows a news reporter who's covering the event - relive the same day over and over again.
