Walking around San Miguel in the sun in my sandals, shorts and short sleeve shirt complaining about it being a little bit chilly and wondering how my compatriots in Ottawa and the rest of Canada are enjoying their winter... On the TV news I hear something about minus - 20 or -30 (they are probably exaggerating by adding in the wind chill factor) and that there is more snow to come - meaning that there has already been snow.... I got a little taste of that weather before I left Canada and I did not like it, I did not like it one little bit...
I have been to 5 Xmas parties so far and 5 more Xmas parties to go. And then it will be New Year's Party time.. I am not counting sing Xmas Carols in the Central Plaza, the Jardin as being a party,
which I will be doing on two different nites... Calling them parties may be an exaggeration - I think of parties as being wild drinking, dancing, debauchery, going crazy and doing other things, which I will not mention... These so called Xmas parties are more like get-to-gathers.. I have long passed that stage in my life when I go to real parties that involve wild drinking, dancing, debauchery, going
crazy and doing other things, which I will not mention - Thank God......
I have put up Xmas decoration outside of my place - I will include pictures of them in my next travelogue blog. I am quite proud of my creative Xmas decoration artistic creations.....
Some San Miguel stuff:
Piņatas every where - they have 7 spikes sticking out of them representing the 7 deadly sins.
Hitting the piņata is hitting against sin and evil - when the piņata breaks and the candies spill out
- that is the reward of virtue for fighting evil and sin..
San Miguel is Saint Michael, the Archangel, who San Miguel is named after.
Satan lead an uprising of angels in Heaven against GOD... Saint Michael lead the angels that were defending GOD and defeated Satan and evil and sin... Satan and his followers (the angels that supported him were expelled from Heaven to HELL..
Satan said that he would whether rule in HELL than serve in Heaven...
Satan is my kind of guy....
Mexican law requires all employers to give all of their employees a Xmas bonus of 2 weeks pay between December 12 and December 18 - and it must be given to them all at one time,
not piece meal.
I have a million things to say about Xmas in San Miguel - but I just do not have the time to do it right now - and maybe never. .
There is no snow in San Miguel - I am not disappointed - I would be if there was snow in San Miguel..
I am enjoying my life in San Miguel and one day I will be dead (maybe???)..
