东亚文化里对狗不亲近,和狗相关的成语多为贬义,如鸡鸣狗盗 丧家之犬 狼心狗肺 狐朋狗友 狗恶酒酸
狗是英语世界的吉祥物,英文管奥8叫Alpha Dog,类似领头羊,所以不吃狗是正常的
各种文化里,一般很少吃本文化的吉祥物
但是也有例外
比如土拨鼠

Groundhog Day 2020 is Sunday, Feb. 2. That means by the time the Super Bowl kicks off that evening, we will know if Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and if we’ll get an early spring or six more weeks of winter.

While not a public holiday, the Groundhog Day observance means a weekend of events in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, leading up to the big moment at Gobbler’s Knob just outside the town early Sunday.

There is a Groundhog Ball, a 4-mile run, an induction ceremony of the meteorologist hall of fame and a showing of the “Groundhog Day” movie starring Bill Murray, according to the official schedule from the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.

The borough of about 5,500 people 60 miles northeast of Pittsburgh gets 30,000 visitors for the event every year.

What time does Punxsutawney Phil come out?

Punxsutawney Phil always comes out around 7:20 a.m. on Feb. 2. When he emerges from his stump he looks for his shadow, then has a conversation in Groundhogese with the president of the Inner Circle of the Groundhog Club who announces Phil’s prognostication, often in rhyme.
What happens if the groundhog sees his shadow? What happens if he doesn’t?

According to tradition, if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow on Groundhog Day it means six more weeks of winter. If the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow, it means an early spring.

The forecast for Punxsutawney calls for clouds and possible snow showers on Sunday.

Meteorologists at AccuWeather, trying to beat the groundhog to the punch, say winter will likely hang on in the Northeast into April, with more snow and colder conditions through early March than we have seen yet this season – despite springlike temperatures early next week.

Is Groundhog Day always February 2? Who came up with Groundhog Day?

Groundhog Day falls on the same date every year and has its roots in an early Christian holiday called Candlemas Day, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. Meant as a blessing to help households through the remaining winter, the day evolved into one of weather forecasting as folks including Germans who settled in Pennsylvania looked to hibernating animals as a sign of what was to come.

The club says the term Groundhog Day first appeared in a local newspaper in 1886. As the groundhog club says, the holiday has become “a day to take everything a little less seriously, and break up the winter monotony ... at least for a little while.”
