Sweets




In Soviet times Christmas was celebrated in private, making the New Year Eve the main public event of the year. And for this occasion a full table of food is a must. These are photos of sweets by factories Uzvara and Laima in Soviet Latvia.
Photos from Latinform archives, 1974, 1978 and 1980

It doesn't matter where you are, a full table is a must for the holidays.
All the best for 2010, Arnis!

..kad kastītes bija pilnas ar riekstiem un rozīnēm šokolādēm un zefīriem, kad kastītēm nebija milzīgas malas un iekšā tik 4 zefīri pa visu kasti :)))
