The sacred origins of the now thoroughly secular Groundhog’s Day.
What a great post. I love Adam’s take on the history of holidays. I hope he will continue to write them.
As for the movie “Groundhog Day,” Harold Ramis, who sadly died young, was a Buddhist himself, at least for a time, but always denied that the movie was inspired by his Buddhism.
Could it have subconsciously influenced how he told the story?
