But.....surely not more so than in India! (If you were subtly making this same joke yourself, my humblest apologies.)

I'm beginning to think Mexicans like Christmas decorations almost as much, or even moreso, than Americans. The zocalo (center of the city) of Mexico City was lit up with giant lighted decorations in festive holiday intentions.

I think the Japanese like them just as much. If not more actually.

that's scary. i am passionately anti-christmas. fortunately in india i escaped all the preparations, carols, decorations, shopping sprees etc. so now it feels more like an assault.

also, from reading one entry in your livejournal i gather: you like someone that you refuse to describe. but she a) probably does not realize this, b) doesn't feel the same way or c) has a boyfriend already? am i close?

almost all of the statues of the Buddha from theravadan countries had neon halos. the colors cycled between yellow orange, green and red.

they also had christmas lights in india for diwali (festival of light). and hundreds of candles.

The Santa Police
Here in cali, the police canvassed the neighborhoods with a santa-bearing sled in tow. Lights blasting, they commanded: COME OUT OF YOUR HOUSES AND SEE SANTA. YOU MUST BELIEVE.

I found you by Googling muwakkals. Your interests are interesting and your writing is written. I mean, uh, well written. And interesting. Thanks much. Thought I'd say hi. Or really, you had a memetic instigator embedded in your grammar somewhere, and thus I was compelled.

I'm not a livejournaler, so this comment is going to claim I'm anonymous. I swear I'm not! I have first, last AND middle names - one of each. If you feel like hunting me down, try Stopforgetting at gmail. Happy Holidaze!!

no live commentary for me! :(
you have left me in Colorado Springs feeling virtually friend less because no one calls me back. I've been locked up in my house for about two and a half weeks (see new post on my page). You should email me sometime! I want to know all about your travels.
