2 February - Hromnice in the Czech Republic
Czech 'Groundhog Day' has ties to Perun, the Slavic god of thunder. Also Hromnice is a very small place in the region of Plzensky in Czech Republic with a population of approximately 1,018 people.
Hromnice is related to the Czech word “hrom,” which means “thunder.” Candles would be consecrated at a Christian mass, and then put on windowsills and lit during storms to protect homes from lightning strikes and fire.
