Mixing Christian and pagan traditions, Latvia celebrates Easter. For Christians, this is the time when Christ was resurrected. For those celebrating pagan traditions, this is the Spring equinox - honoring of the arrival of spring and return of the sun. Those celebrating the spring equinox carry out ancient rituals to help the land wake up from its winter sleep and ensure the fertility of the land and bless it.
