Traditions and Culture

Miķelis Day
Old Latvian Tradition
The ending of summer and the turning of the sun towards winter marks the autumn equinox (September 23). By the celebration of Miķeļi all crops must be stored and the gardens harvested, as after Miķeļi the gates are open for winter.
We celebrated Miķelis Day together with the Danish pupils.
