On 13 December at the ambassador’s residence, Ambassador Pēteris Vaivars and his spouse Rina hosted the first festive event for members of the Latvian diaspora to bring in the Christmas season. The event welcomed 30 participants – Latvians living in Korea and their families, and the Embassy staff – who baked gingerbread cookies, won prizes in a raffle, and presented special musical performances.  

The visitors were treated to foods from Latvia and tasted traditional Latvian specialties – grey peas, salads and meat dishes cooked by the Ambassador’s spouse.

Ambassador Pēteris Vaivars offers thanks to the participants for creating a Christmas atmosphere and wishes happy holidays to all Latvian nationals and their families.
