''The longest night'' - inspired by an old latvian tradition where people wore masks and went from house to house singing, dancing and making noise. They dressed up as animals, mythological creatures as well as inanimate objects. People did this during the long and dark winter time, especially at the beginning and end of winter, as well as the winter solstice time.
