We stayed with my wonderful Latvian host parents Saiva and Andris.
Christmas markets in Old Town. Even though Latvia is a Lutheran country and they celebrate Christmas on December 25, about 30 percent of the people living in Latvia are Slavic (Russian, Ukrainian, Belarussian) so because of Orthodox Christmas and New Year they keep the markets running until after old New Year (January 14th).
Of course it's Latvia and there is always some sort of folk singing and dancing. The Orthodox Cathedral is in the background.
A nice Christmas tree.
More Christmas markets in Doma Laukums....I love this country!
