266: Reflection of blue and gold
Almost all shopping malls in Brazil make much work with Christmas decorations. No effort will be spared to show the most beautiful decorations to customers. Those decorations are often related to a single theme, and almost all show scenes of wintry atmospheres, that you may be common with in Northern and Western Europe, and in North America. Brazilians who have never seen snow in their lives, can see polar bears and penguins in carving Christmas decorations. In one of the largest shopping malls in Belo Horizonte, I saw a huge Christmas ball. The light of a blue Christmas tree was reflected in this large golden ball.
