The seer of seers, the prognosticator of prognosticators, has declared six more weeks of winter!!! Boo-hiss, as someone I used to know would say…Apparently, Punxsutawney Phil has several rivals, among them Staaten Island Chuck, who didn’t see his shadow–but we all know that Staaten Island doesn’t count (for much of anything…who said that!?). Some great pictures from this charming but ridiculous ritual.

Apparently it’s Candlemas. Who knew? I suspect quite often that modern ignorance concerning the liturgical year is a more serious handicap to understanding the Middle Ages than we know…
