  1. LATVIANS also have egg hunt activity early in the morning, as well egg fights – the one with the strongest egg will be the heathiest. We sway in swings to protect ourselves from mosquitoes, quite large event is egg coloring in onion peels. There are people who go to the church. Pagan traditions are quite blended with christion traditions.
