Old Wives Take Note of Weather in January

Here in Costa Rica, old wives claim the meteorological office needs no more scientific system to predict the weather than to note the climate on the first 12 days of January. These days are known as las pintas, because they paint (pintar) the weather for the forthcoming year, each day representing one month. If it rains on Jan. 6, for example, you can expect it to rain in June.
