The feast of S. John's Day, June 24, called by the Lettish people "Ligo," is one of the merriest Latvian holidays. It is on this occasion that the country people decorate themselves and their houses with garlands of foliage, preferably oak leaves. Old and young participate in this festival, which is a remnant of pagan celebrations in connexion with the ancient nature-worship of the Lettish (The Secret Museum of Mankind. New York, Manhattan House, 1935)

An old photo of Ligo / Jani celebrations in Latvia. It's an old pagan tradition, which is still a very important nowadays. House is decorated with oak, birch and rowan tree branches. Women make and wear flower wreaths, men oak tree ones.
