Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain - São Paulo

This is from a fellow blogger's blog but for privacy (his kids) I'll leave off the credit.

Yesterday morning as I drove my husband to a meeting (told you I was in charge of the motor pool), I did a double take as I passed by Shopping Iguatemi, one of the fancy shopping centers in São Paulo. At this time of year, the same ol' Santa gets trotted out--he is ginormous. At least one story tall. And he normally has a yellow labrador sitting at his feet.

Yesterday morning they were there (wait, what's the date again? I think it's November 8 when I saw it. Wow). Wearing yellow rain slickers. It's been raining for the last five days in the city and apparently even Santa and Santa Dog don't like the wet. I laughed so hard I almost rear-ended a bus which was not so amusing to my husband.

Also not my photo. Fortunately the person put her own credit on there.
Merry Christmas!

    1. I have to catch them putting them on someday. Must take a pretty big ladder!

  2. Hahahaha, oh golly I would have done the same - mind you the SAH is wondering why I am laughing my head off!!!! Must admit I am soooo enjoying the endless sunny days here! Swam in our pool in early October and it's already 80F now! So our Santa needs to lather himself with sunscreen!!

    1. Yes, I must say I envy the J'burg/Pretoria weather right now. It has been a pretty yucky spring. Does your Santa wear a big red suit too?
