Merry hot Xmas by Parororo Merry hot Xmas by Parororo
It makes no sense to try to trick ourselves and think that here (Chile) it would snow in december.... or that the many old guys dressed as Santa with those huge coats... are comfortable with the +30°C out there (in F°.. that's.... very hot)...

Because yeah, more than once or twice I've had to explain "yes~ we have chrismtas during summer!"
"omg why?"
"because we live in the southern hemisphere ¦ D our seasons are switched you know?"

Xmas during summer? yeah it's still possible P : I just know for sure more than a few people will go "omg that's weird o_o".

So yeah, happy holidays to y'all : P

I thought this was hilarious, probably because my area has a similiar problem...

We're still in the nothern hemisphere, sure, but we don't have much of a winter. More like rainy season, and I happen to sweat in December weather, to put into perspective the heat.  I live parallel  to the Sahara desert, so I guess I shouldn't expect cool weather...

Yeah, thats about 86 degrees in Fahrenheit. That's a somewhat comfortable day in SC during spring. xD

Brazil's christmas is hot as hell >_<
But I wish our christmas was at winter, and it'd be even better if it snowed here -_-
Parororo Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hahahaha it sucks huh xDD

The only thing I'm grateful about that, is that we get summer holidays/vacation during xmas, so instead of 2 weeks, we have those 2 or 3 months free : D
sugarylemon Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I have 3 months for summer vacations! (but my brother has only 2 XD)
Do you have winter vacations there too?
I have 1 month of winter vacations :D

Una vez yo pasé la Navidad con nieve en Chile, pero fue en Aysén y tenía como cinco años, no es imposible.
También durante el gobierno de la UP hubo un temporal catastrófico en verano con una fuerte nevazón en la zona central que destruyó las cosechas, etc. Fue en verano, pero no en Navidad.
Y respecto a los viejos pascueros acalorados, no es nada en comparación a los "góticos", "emos", y todas esas "tribus" que usan abrigos de látex, bufandas, etc. en los momentos más inesperados.

y no estás harto de que insistan con lo de tomar chocolate CALIENTE en nochebuena cuando estás que te cocinas de calor? x__x!
me encanta como coloreas, por cierto :3
Parororo Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
a veces pasa xD; pero nah... al menos no me insisten, y si pasa, pues uno se niega nada más owo y gracias~
Drucila Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2009
no no, osea, no 'insistan' de que a ti te insistan en que lo tomes, sino insistan en que la mayoría de las personas en su casa siguen haciendo eso como tradición, a pesar de que la tradición haya surgido en paises con navidad en invierno y es estú;pido que hagan eso cuando se está a 30º XD
y síii, te queda genial, yo no tengo tanta paciencia para mezclar tantos tonos *--*

I love this picture so much!!! but it's sadly little bit)
jpv777 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2008
Love this pic heaps...and I love how it reflects on the fact that it won't snow on Christmas, EVER, where I live :(
I hate how when I was little I would watch cartoons near Christmas, and it would snow in the cartoon, and when it actually WAS Christmas, I'd be upset that it didn't snow, and never did snow on any of the four Christmases that I'd lived through...and then I learned that it didn't snow on Christmas. Damn those cartoons that break that hearts of little kiddies that want it to snow :(

haha this is great! I grew up in southern florida so i understand. lol

my best friend and I had a battle with sculpting sand and our subject was snowmen so I was going to do a snowman like the one you drew! But I decided to be really mature and make my snowman leaning over and sticking his toungue out at my best friend's snow-macho-woman. hehe

Not sure why i felt like sharing that but anyway, love your gallary! very cute<3

I like it a lot, that's cool looking. And I personally hate cold weather. Where I live it is winter, but not very cold and definitely, definitely not snowing. It doesn't feel like winter.
