Happy Birthday, James Joyce!

My boyfriend is a huge fan of James Joyce (Ulysses, in particular). James Joyce's birthday is February 2nd, otherwise known as Groundhog Day, especially to those of us from Western Pennsylvania. My boyfriend has a ritual of marking Joyce's birthday by reading part of a Joyce book and drinking some good Irish whiskey.

I have a Groundhog Day ritual of watching the movie Groundhog Day on Groundhog Day. Not very original I know.

My boyfriend has never seen Groundhog Day, even though it's been discussed in some of his literature classes (he was an English Lit major in college). So this year, we decided to combine our February 2nd traditions by drinking whiskey, toasting James Joyce, and watching Groundhog Day. I had rehearsal on the actual February 2nd, so we scheduled our Groundhog Day/James Joyce's Birthday festivities for February 3rd.
