PUNXSUTAWNEY, PA - FEBRUARY 02: Groundhog handler John Griffiths holds Punxsutawney Phil, who did not see his shadow, predicting an early or late spring during the 134th annual Groundhog Day festivities on February 2, 2020 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Groundhog Day is a popular tradition in the United States and Canada. A crowd of upwards of 20,000 people spent a night of revelry awaiting the sunrise and the groundhog's exit from his winter den. If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his den. Early spring arrives if he does not see his shadow, causing Phil to remain above ground. Jeff Swensen/Getty Images/AFP

Slavni svizac Phil iz Punxsutawneya provirio je iz svoje nastambe u američkoj saveznoj državi Pennsylvaniji u nedjelju ujutro no nije vidio svoju sjenu, čime je, prema tradiciji, predvidio raniji dolazak proljeća.

"Sjenu svoju Phil ne vidje, proljeće će doći prije", tako otprilike glasi prijevod jedne od dviju tradicionalnih rečenica koju izgovara stručni prevoditelj pred gomilom oduševljenih fanova najgoreg, ali najljupkijeg američkog meteorologa.

Prema tradiciji čiji korijeni sežu u 1887. godinu, ako Phil vidi svoju sjenu, zima će se produljiti za još šest tjedna, a za takav slučaj postoji druga izreka.

Prve su sviščeve prognoze zabilježene upravo na području Pennsylvanije i danas su spektakl iako ih američki klimatski autoriteti smatraju uspješnima u samo 40 posto.

Sviščev dan obilježava se na Svijećnicu širom Sjedinjenih Država, no festival u Punxsutawneyju je najpoznatiji, a u svjetsku pop kulturu ušao je s filmom "Beskrajan dan" iz 1993. s glumcem Billom Murrayem u glavnoj ulozi.

Svisci spavaju zimski san i njihov im biološki sat govori kada je vrijeme za buđenje i početak reprodukcije. To je pomoglo širenju legende da proljeće dolazi sa sviščevim buđenjem.

"Groundhog Day" i prateća pompa svake godine u Punxsutawneyu, gradiću s 5,5 tisuća stanovnika, privlači desetke tisuća ljudi i donosi mu dodatnih milijun dolara prihoda, po podacima tamošnje gospodarske komore.
