US and Pennsylvania flag in Ground Hog Day


Ground Hog Day is an American tradition, which started in Pennsylvania.  Just barely for a moment does the flag of Pennsylvania appear in this truly timeless American classic, Ground Hog Day, a movie that impressed a unique American value upon this quirky holiday.   The flag of Pennsylvania is in the background of the two men holding the orange 'Blizzard' sign.  Next to the greed '6 MORE WEEKS OF WINTER'   sign is the 50 starred US flag.  

 Ground Hog Day!  Unlike Christmas, New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day, Easter, Passover, Ramadan, Hannukah, Christmas, Rosh Hashanah, St. Patrick's Day, it is a true-blue All-American holiday like the 4th of July, and Thanksgiving.  Perhaps the quirkiest of American holidays? It's a non-denominational for all the people groups of the US.  Several flags appear in this movie, and thankfully the Pennsylvania State flag makes an appearance.

Luar Twilight - 21st Night


The Moon is New, Empty and yet to lit as if in Utero.  Soon the first Moon of 2023 will begin its dance around the Earth.  Until then there is a required darkness and waiting.  Until then, a deep quite sleep is required, for the new spouts of tomorrow's new Moon glow of 2023.  Oddly this is a rare Moon that syncs up with the Eastern Calendar, whence the year of Cat Begins from a Yin point of view, but most in the East recognize it as the Year of the Rabbit.

Lunar Twilight - 20th Night


The last night of Lunar Twilight is dedicated to 2022, yesteryear, it is the last light of 2022 to go out.  Only then will the days of 2023 sync up with each other upon the first sliver of New Lunar Light of 2023 to take the stage in less than 48 hours. 

Here the King of Nat wears a skinny black tie, a classic for the ages.  The tie was originally a military device from Croatia.  But it has now become an international essential for the suit and iconic symbol for manhood. 

Hoping that the previous year and years to come are as "Unforgettable" with the best of intentions and tone, as Mr. Cole put it.

Lunar Twilight - 19th Night: Stand By Me 1961


With two candles left for Lunar Twilight, the end is near for the last hurray of 2022 to give its goodbyes.  Two candles are a perfect metaphor for Ben E. King's classic Stand By Me

Lunar Twilight - 16 Night


Tracy Chapman's song Fast Car captures the themes of Lunar Twilight.  Remember Lunar Twilight is a time when yesteryear's Moon of 2022 returns to sneak back in at night during 2023, when the Sun is not looking. 

In the video there is quick shot of laundry hanging from a line.  Note that hanging laundry is one of the oldest ways of sending secret signals.  But it very unlikely that that was case with this video with Tracy Chapman.
