Meat for Christmas

Traditional food for Christmas? For instance, in England it's a turkey. In Latvia - a pig's nose (or full head). But of course, nowadays it's a rarity on Christmas table.

Little snow

Snowing in Ziepniekkalns district of Riga. This winter the snow hasn't stayed for more than a few hours and perhaps it's gonna be a rare grey Christmas. It should have been some -15 C outside, instead it's +5 C. Consequences of global warming?
