Three for the Weekend: Christmas goodness

While Latvia isn't exactly reveling in snow at the moment, things related to Christmas are slowly cropping up across the country.

Old Town Christmas Fair

The Riga Old Town is as each year replete, with Christmas vendors selling mulled wine and gifts, musicians playing music, and visitors daring the tricky cobblestone at the heart of Riga to get to all that.

"Visitors will have a chance to find their Christmas miracle here every day. Various concerts and workshops are on the programme, with Santa Claus entertaining kids and adults alike," says Riga's tourism portal, Live Riga.
