EVENTS IN DECEMBER, 2019. A useful shortlist.

Those infamous winter holidays are near, and everyone can feel it. No, it is not another Mariah Carey hit in grocery stores, but they are Holiday markets in Riga. They are the dark afternoons, and temperatures below zero. Eventually, it's the snow we wait the most as long as it never gets mixed with sludge and keeps being dry.
Accidentally and without any purpose we selected this December's shortlist, mainly offering events available for free or close to free. And why would that be bad? If most money goes to presents, debts, or simply heating, it is quite convenient to enjoy your time with fewer costs.
