Explore Irregular Latvian yuletide traditions

Our favorite YouTuber, Anete Germane, is back with another of her inimitable guides to Latvian lore and language.

This time around she is looking at a distinctive Latvian tradition – Ķekatas – that manages to combine all the dressing-up fun of Halloween with all the end-of-year, calling-on-the neighbors fun of Christmas.

Anete does a much better job of explaining the whole thing than we could manage, so watch the video above to find out more.
