Sao Paulo, Brazil would most definitely win first place in the “Global Award for Christmas Decoration Participation,” if indeed, there was such an honor.
You can’t swing a bat without swatting the nose of a reindeer or the behind of a Santa in this city. Not only are contributions to the holiday spirit high, but incredibly elaborate and detailed.
And it seems that most everyone feels the need to participate.
Although it does seems strange viewing these beautiful displays when the temperature is 90˚ (Fahrenheit) and humidity is somewhere around 100% (it feels).
Brazilians also have unique ideas about what Santa and his elves do on their days off.
