So if you would need new friends, how traditions may be related to it?
Traditions are mostly for locals ;)
Anyway... I think most of national traditions are related to the bigger holidays:

- Christmas and the New Year celebration - I think it's the most important family holiday in Latvia

- International Women's Day - 8 March - men are supposed to buy lots of flowers and make gifts to women ;)

- The WWII Victory day on fascism - mostly, only Slavic/Russian-speaking part of Latvia celebrates this day on 9th May

- Ligo: 23-24 th June, The Summer Solstice night - everyone is supposed to drink beer, eat cheese, have a nice sex and find a fern flower

- September the 1st - the day when our children go to school meaning the adults party as well

- Latvian independence day - November the 18th - mostly, only local Latvians celebrates it actively.

I think you may skip some of the political celebration days, and whatever is left, you may use in staying with your friends ;)

Hi, thanks for your help. I thought knowing about traditions would give me knowledge about Latvia so it would help me to communicate when I meet a Latvian. This helps finding friend (i guess indirectly), also when you go to national celebrations you can also meet Latvians. Your information helped so I know more now
