Las Pintas, a Tico Farmer’s Almanac?

Farmer's Almanac

Farmer's Almanac

Flying back to Costa Rica after the holidays, I sat next to a Costa Rican couple who told me about Las Pintas. They said farmers believe (or believed before the unusual weather of recent years) that the first 12 days of the new year correspond to the first 12 months of the new year and are predictors of the weather for each month. For example, if January 6th is a beautiful day, the sixth month (June) will enjoy beautiful weather. If there is any truth to this, I am not looking forward to August, the 8th month. January 8th was the day the 6.2 earthquake occurred.
