Adding extra lights to your house makes a whole lot more sense when the sun isn't shining for 15 hours a day.
On Tuesday, I returned to the northern hemisphere. Here, the week before Christmas is as it should be. Its cold. As in less than zero. Its dark. Almost all day. All of the houses in my neighborhood seem to be trying to outshine one another. And everyone has lost their minds buying presents, baking dozens of cookies, sending silly cards, and watching White Christmas yet again. Its great. I can't wait for Pablo to get here.
