Groundhog Day -
Sunday March 5, 2017

Culture : Chinese Ground Hog Day, Chinese Insects Awake Day or Excited Insects Day is one of the 24 Chinese solar divisions. Hibernated animals should come back and rejoice the arrival of Spring and it marks the beginning of new life. This includes creepy crawly insects and bugs which most people would rather squash when they see one. And somehow this turns into beating up paper tigers that symbolizing your enemies or what we called petti people such that you will be free of trouble or misfortune. http://www.hkfastfacts.com

Catholic or protestant : The First Council of Nicaea (a gathering of bishops in the early days of Christianity) wanted to find a day to commemorate the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. This commemoration had to be linked to Jewish holiday traditions, since the last supper of Christ was believed to be a Jewish Passover meal. But the Jewish calendar is based on lunar and solar cycles, so the Easter celebration had to follow the same calendar.
