Tropical Snow

By January 3, 2011 April 8th, 2018 Photography, Travel Journal

“…when least expected, tell-tale signs of Christmas cheer arose in pretty extraordinary ways throughout the Yucatan. Most town plazas were capped with enormous and elaborately decorated Christmas trees complete with garland and dusted in at least two and a half inches of phony snowfall. The Palacio de Gobierno in Mérida was one such participant which had a festive display of good tidings, as added to their snowy tree was a large sleigh. I can imagine that this could be confusing for toddlers of the tropics who have never seen snow as a wheel-less sleigh must seem like the most useless mode of transportation. Evidently the traditional German vision of Christmas has a monopoly on the whole of North American tradition.”
