Midsummer in Lettland

Don’t miss the most typical of all Latvian festivals in the night of June 23-24. This is the shortest night of the year. Latvians weave wreaths, drink beer and jump over bonfires to cleanse themselves from all abundance, which is an ancient tradition. The families get together, eat typical Latvian caraway cheese, sing, dance and bath in the steam bath until dawn! Herbs, that were picked at the solstice, are believed to have magical or healing powers. On St. John’s Eve you must not go to sleep until the sun has risen. On the morning of St. John’s Day you have to wade through the morning dew, then there will always be money in your pocket. Women will become more beautiful if they wash their faces with the dew .
