Christmas in Riga

Happy Holidays from all of us at the Holla. We did just survive the shortest day of the year, which is pretty short here. So, we're escaping the cold and dark by heading to our satellite offices in sunny, warm Massachusetts.

Anyway, regular readers have probably noticed the staff photographer's recent fondness for night photography. There's ample time for it in Riga these days. This is one of Riga's Christmas markets. They're pretty modest compared to Berlin's, but they can be charming all the same. Sadly, they don't stay open to serve karstvins (Latvian for gluhwein, which is in turn German for mulled wine) to those passing through late in the evening.
