I’ve always blamed a combination of Dickens, Currier and Ives, and a stop motion animation special with a red nosed character for the preoccupation with having a white Christmas. There are huge swatches of the planet where Christmas is eagerly celebrated and where it never or rarely ever snows, or only snows at really high elevations. Here in the Baltimore/DC area, we’re living through a blissfully balmy December (and as someone who does outdoor shows during the month, this is wonderful beyond all words).
For today’s Friday Photo, I bring you a photo from outside a church from the Land of Eternal Spring, or Guatemala. (In all honestly, this photo was taken in May of this year, but I imagine if you go to this church in Chichicastenango today, the scene would be the same.)
And, whatever the weather is in your part of the planet, have a great holiday.
