So it's obviously warm here, and I'm used to living in cold places for Christmas. But it's not the weather that's throwing me off. It's all the light. Guadalajara is bright and sunny, and there are hours more daylight. One of my favorite things about all the holidays during this time of year is that they symbolically use light in so many ways, and I'm missing that right now because light just doesn't have the same meaning here as it does in Seattle or Bishkek or Moscow. I know a lot of people complain about the darkness at this time of year, and switching back to standard time, but I love it.
I'd also take some clouds during the day.
