Groundhog day isn't stupid! How else would we know when winter ends.


I can usually tell winter is over since my neighbor finally takes down his damn holiday lights.

My neighbor has left her live and decorated Christmas tree in her yard up since 1995. It's always a festival at her house if you know what I mean.

I can't fault her for perpetually celebrating the Saturnalia.

Yes, Passover Nissan the 14th (April 2 2018)
Wave sheaf
Barley
Wine
Oil
Wood
and AT One Ment

Theses are the ancient Hebrew Holy Days connected to the Harvest. All Calendars were in sync after March 20th 2015 for a short while. Also 7 divides into 364 by 52. The extra day is called Zero (Zara) point. This will cause the 7th day to progress 1 day each year. Also the Leap year doesn't exit in Heaven only when a certain blood group are in charge is it Out of Order as on the Egregorian Calendar. Let's see if anyone can figure out the other dates.

He's probably the only reason why anyone still gives a crap about that dopey holiday.

'Say, I have a great idea, let's yank a small mammalian from it's burrow and let how it reacts to its shadow determine our seasonality!'

I take it that you didn't experience the "magic of Christmas" when you were a little tyke?

We were referencing Groundhog Day but I'll still sit on Santa's lap as log as it's DB dressed up like him.

Oops I almost forgot the 365th day of the Year, Zero Point. Which is also the 8th Holy day in the complete year. The day everyone goes up to stand in their Order to pay their respects to the Most High, In Hebrew it would be Zara Day because the only Vowel one needs is with the Alaph (Aleph).

Salt. Pepper. Maybe some sage and rosemary. As long as you cook that critter on an open fire and serve it with whiskey, beer, and corn on the cob wrapped in bacon I'd say we're good.

Staten Island’s famous groundhog died after Bill de Blasio dropped it

de blasio, you son of a b****, it's not a blood sacrifice!




“Mayor de Blasio has groundhog blood on his hands!” the paper says, after an investigation by three of its reporters found that a groundhog famously dropped by the mayor this past Groundhog Day died days later.

The groundhog in question is the Staten Island Zoo’s “Chuck,” which is basically the Punxsutawney Phil of the Big Apple. Anyway, here’s what happened at last year’s Groundhog Day weather forecast:

With Christianity there wasn't any actual day known for all of these Christian holidays and so days had to be selected. Since Pagans have been around longer than Christians it was good logic to align up Christian Holidays with preexisting events as Pagans were also converted to Christianity. These preexisting events also aligned with many natural events like solstices. When we really look at a full year the number of days actually available/likable dwindle down to a small number out of the 365 that people see as the most important, and so many holidays tend to overlap each other.

And of course the weekly sabbath to rest on the seventh day. Now the day of the Sabbath would appear to advance a day each year and 2 days each leap year. Though the dates only advance on leap years making the Leap year the worse Holiday of all because as long as Egregori are allowed to keep it they will be OUT OF ORDER because they would not Keep God's Law of Love given on the Mount of Transfiguration.

Daniel says The Devil seeks to change times and law. I think he meant to say the fallen Egregori.

In most countries, Christianity is a nature religion.

The pagans were wrong in worshipping nature itself, instead of respecting the most fundamental source of its intelligent growth. So it makes sense that a recovery was in order. Reverence of unchangeable nature via recognition of the most fundamental creative force.
