Thank you for visiting, Gabi, Yes, nice sunny "Big day" ("Lielās dienas"- spring solstace celebration- day becomes longer than night). This is ancient Latvian tradition (from pagan religion) to celebrate natural changes, ~when it happens - Lieldienas (spring), Līgo(Midsummer ; 23/6), Martini (autumn) and Ziemassvētki (Winter)
