Of Christmas Trees and Spirits

These past few days I've been discovering Riga that is preparing for Christmas and  have to admit that it looks M A G I C A L! City's medieval appearance intertwines with jolly Christmas tunes that are played in Doma Laukums all day long, and I, personally, really enjoy the possibility to grab a glass of mulled wine from a sweet old lady in the Christmas market (what I did while waiting the lighting of Christmas tree three days ago). Riga is the very place to feel the coming of biggest festivities!

I am especially glad that on the day of lighting the Christmas tree, snow started to fall! Riga now is covered in white and this time it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
