There are some countries where the heat can be unbearable sometimes. In such places, particularly in tropical countries, humidity can be at its peak between 10 in the morning to around 3 in the afternoon, sometimes even more. The excruciating heat is enough to spoil the appetite for lunch of even the hungriest person. Who would want to eat while you're battling with the heat, right? The intolerable heat has made people install ceiling fan lights in their dining rooms just to alleviate the heat and still make dining at least tolerable.
Actually, in most houses in tropical countries or other places where the temperature can shoot up to boiling point, a ceiling fan is a permanent feature. So even if the lady of the house wants to put pendant light fixtures in the dining room, they would have to make do with the desire of other member of the family. Of course, other people reason that the air which ceiling fans generate is not cold so it's pointless installing them. However, they are still able to blow warm air out and make the dense atmosphere more bearable.
