Snow in New York
I noticed it did not snow in Kanto this year! Last year it snowed and was very pretty!
In New York City it snowed as early as November. It even snowed on Thanksgiving Day! In New York it snows a lot in January and February.
In the USA there is a holiday called Groundhog Day. On this day an animal, called a groundhog, comes out of the ground. If it sees its shadow we will have 6 more weeks of winter. If it doesn’t then Spring will start early. This year, Groundhog Day is on February 2nd.
If you like snow and want to visit New York, January and February is a great time to go. It will be very cold, so wear lots of layers!
Are there any Japanese traditions that involve animals? Please tell me about it in the lobby!
