Groundhog Day, also known as Mole Day, is an event in the Animal Crossing series. This holiday was left out of Animal Crossing: Wild World. However, it returns in Animal Crossing: City Folk and all games since.
This event doesn't occur in European versions of Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
In Animal Crossing
Like the real holiday, the entire village will gather to see if the local mole will predict winter, else the long awaited spring. At 7:00 AM, villagers will congregate around the Wishing Well. You can chat with the villagers while waiting until 8:00 AM, when Mr. Resetti makes a cameo appearance as "the mole." If you talk to Tortimer after the ceremony (which finishes at 9:00am), he will give you one of many flower models in honor of the occasion.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf
The event makes an appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf as well. Isabelle, the Mayor's secretary, can be found at the Plaza for the Player to talk to. Once doing so, Isabelle will hand the Player a Resetti Model, the same item the Player receives in City Folk. The only thing that differs from the previous game such as there being a billboard that one Player can stick their face into, a hole for a Player to make faces with Mr. Resetti by their side.
Dialogue in Animal Crossing: New Leaf
During Groundhog Day, the following dialogue is spoken by Isabelle:
- "Oh, Mayor! Today's the day we try to guess when spring will arrive, It's "Groundhog Day!"
- "That's why I've prepared a special little something to really celebrate "Groundhog Day!"
- "It's a Resetti model! Please take it in celebration of our town's Groundhog Day!"
