Do you know the only mammal to have a day named in his honor? Yes, it is the lowly groundhog, sometimes called the woodchuck.
The groundhog’s day is February 2. Now, it’s not a federal holiday and nobody gets off work. But, to have a day named after you is quite a feat.
Groundhog Day Trivia

What do you think Clay Aiken is doing this Groundhog Day? Is he at home, putting the finishing touches on his new project, or is he in Los Angeles/New York/Vancouver, working hard and still having some fun? Wherever he is, I hope Clay is having a great day!
Pictures of Clay always make me smile. How about you?
Do you remember these appearances?
They certainly are diverse!
Where ever Clay is – I hope he is smiling and working on something. I love all of the diverse pics –
but the last one is special – because, I loved watching the videos of Carnegie Hall of him watching
and speaking at that event – he oozed dignity!! <3 🙂
lovely photos of a beautiful man! Thanks Musicfan xox.
I especially like the one of Clay at Tara's Flawsome Ball. He looks so stylish and handsome.

I adore the profile pic of Clay singing and wearing a black suit. He has the greatest profile!
Very nice pictures. They certainly do differ – casual, sophisticated, styling, or business like – depending on the activity Clay is involved in at the time. I see a blonde Clay picture has made an appearance again. I can not believe I hadn't downloaded a single blonde Clay picture. It is right clicked and saved now.
Love the two groundhog animations. Seems I had to click on the second one in order to coax him to pop up. Very cute. Happy Groundhog Day!
Love the pictures. In #3 Clay has a impish grin. So handsome in the black suit,Happy or serius he always looks great.
I have to admit, in #3 he looks like the cat who swallowed the canary. Very cute! I love #1 because I thought he looked gorgeous as a blond. But, I also really like #6 in the black suit..he looks so handsome there.
Well whatever he's doing, I hope he was having a wonderful day. I didn't even realize it was GH day until around 5pm that night! LOL Love love love…#'s 4,5 & 6! Oh my!!!
Can he be any cuteEr?no!!!!!!!!!!
