“Concord Charlie” will make annual prediction Monday morning

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Monday morning, Concord University will host its 41st annual groundhog day breakfast.

The folklore looks to the rodent for predictions about hot much winter remains.

As the tradition goes, if a groundhog sees his shadow, six more weeks of winter is expected. But if he doesn't see his shadow, an early spring is on the way.

It may not be scientific, but it is a fun way to begin February, which is why Concord hosts it's annual breakfast for Charlie.

Each year, Concord University picks a groundhog watcher to deliver a speech at the dinner. This year's groundhog watcher is new football head coach Dave Walker.

Breakfast tickets are still on sale for $20. You can purchase tickets at the door, or online at
