    WITH TEMPERATURES SOARING UP TO 106 DEGREES F. RIO DE JANEIRO PARENTS HAVE A DIFFICULT?

  • Description

    WITH TEMPERATURES SOARING UP TO 106 DEGREES F. RIO DE JANEIRO PARENTS HAVE A DIFFICULT TASK CONVINCING THEIR CHILDREN THAT FATHER CHRISTMAS COMPLETE WITH THICK WHITE BEARD AND HEAVY RED COSTUME IS REALLY AUTHENTIC.

    THE STREETS OF THIS LIVELY CITY HAVE AS THEIR CHRISTMAS DECORATIVE THEME PARACHUTES WHICH HANG OVERHEAD. GAZING UPWARDS IS MANY A PUZZLED CHILD WHO WONDERS HOW THE OLD MAN CAN LAND SAFELY USING SUCH A DEVICE MEANWHILE CARRYING A SACK OF TOYS. OTHER, MORE SOPHISTICATED, CHILDREN ARE CERTAIN THAT FATHER CHRISTMAS ARRIVES VIA WATER-SKIS -- LOGICAL THINKING CONSIDERING THAT IT'S A FAVOURITE SPORT OF LOCAL RESIDENTS IN THE SUMMER HEAT.

    FOR THE YOUNG AND THE OLD CHRISTMAS IS A VERY SPECIAL TIME: BUT FOR THE IN-BETWEENS IN RIO, THERE IS ALWAYS THE FABULOUS BEACH AT COPACABANA. THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS-CARD SCENES MUST SEEM UNREAL TO SUN-WORSHIPPERS LAYING BACK IN THE WARM SUN, THINKING ABOUT THE NATIVITY ON A COLD WINTER NIGHT LONG AGO.
