Overview of festivals and celebrations in Latvia
The summer solstice is celebrated at the world-famous Ligo Summer Festival on the night of June 23-24. This bright, colorful holiday has pagan roots. Latvians burn fires all night, weave beautiful wreaths of flowers and herbs and adorn their heads, animals and houses, dress up in traditional costumes, tell ancient legends, drink beer, sing folk songs, and dance. According to legend, on this day you can meet real witches. It is also believed that if one throws into a river or a lake two wreaths, one of which symbolizes its owner and the other - his/her beloved one, by the behavior of the wreaths on the water, one can judge about the joint future: if the wreaths meet, the lovers will get married. Another belief is connected with fern. The one who finds its flower will be able to understand the languages of animals and plants.
