Bunn - Groundhog Day, Feb. 2nd, is a US pseudo-holiday. It's the day when the groundhog supposedly comes out of his hibernation burrow and looks around. Then if he sees his shadow winter's supposed to be almost over and if he doesn't see his shadow we're all gonna die or some such horseshit. Anyway, there was a movie made several years ago in which a television newsperson, played by Bill Murray, went to a town where they have a Groundhog Day celebration, got trapped in a timewarp, and lived the same day, Groundhog Day, over and over again.
Your post reminded me of the timewarp idea and since Groundhog Day was just a few days ago... But I forgot you're across the pond.
They don't have Hedgehog Day over there, do they?
