With the Rainy Season Comes the Rainbow Season

black and white rainbow

In Guatemala the rainy season brings the rainbow season too. The rainy season in Guatemala wets the months or May through October, sometimes even November which are basically the summer and fall seasons in the Northern Hemisphere where Guatemala is located. Most Guatemalans equate the wet months of May though October with winter, so they call it invierno, winter, even though we are in the summer season. Are you confused yet? Well read up my entry on The Land of the Eternal Spring for some clarification or to totally give up on logic.

Tomorrow is Father’s Day in Guatemala, always on the same date, June 17th. I hope to catch something for you.

UPDATE: For a humoristic look at the weather and weather forecasting in Guatemala and to see an unbelievable photograph of thunderstorm in Guatemala City, please read El Canche’s entry on Predicting the Weather in Guatemala.

  • Interesting that it is always on the same date…Father’s Day. Is Mother’s Day always May 12th, as it is in Mexico? The photo is lovely…I love rainbows.

  • Lavenderlady, Father’s Day and Mother’s Day are celebrated on the same dates in Guatemala, June 17th and May 10th. I believe Mother’s Day in Mexico is celebrated on May 10th as well.

    It looks like nobody is interested in rainbows anymore. Too bad because had you follow the rainbow you could’ve found a pot with gold I left just for you at the other end of the rainbow. 😉

    Funny enough I haven’t seen a rainbow in ages! I must start looking up after the rain 🙂

  • Seeing a rainbow after a rain is just awesome!! I feel like I’m back on my younger years. To me, they are just perfect creations of God. By the way, I guess I am too late to greet a ‘Happy Father’s Day!. 😀
