Every year, in Punxsutawney, PA, an event celebrating Groundhog Day takes place. Men in tall, stupid hats dress up, pick up a groundhog, and see if it makes a shadow.
And they take it REALLY seriously:
This event is held annually on the date written in all parts of the world as 2/2
22 is the Master Builder number.
This event always takes place in close proximity to the Super Bowl, where 22 men are always on the field.
2+9+4+7 = 22
If the groundhog sees his shadow, it’s supposed to mean winter will last for six more weeks.
The event is held annually by the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.
They were formed in 1899
February 2nd is always the 33rd day of the year
The event features Punxsutawney Phil from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
P is the 16th letter of the alphabet.
22 and 33 are both master numbers. 22 + 33 = 55

Just when you thought all the P.P. was enough sexual innuendo…
