First Person Magazine
During my childhood, I always spent Christmas night together with my younger brother, laying next to the Christmas tree and eating piparkūkas [Latvian type of gingerbread]. We tried to keep this tradition, regardless of the years that passed as we grew older. Now, this is one of the lost traditions. One that has been so dear to my heart like many others.
These are the traditions that were lost to age, colonization, globalization and many more obstacles that they struggled to overcome. This month’s issue will take us back to our yesterday, childhood, and history! This issue is monumentous for First Person, as it contains our 100th post!

Hello beloved readers!
The second part of our mini series is out! This time we’re proud to showcase one of the things our writers hold most dear… language! Throughout this months theme, anything but English our writers will provide articles from a first person perspective in their mother tongue. We hope to highlight the beauty, value and power that language holds while continuing to share the current, personal and unique stories our readers crave.
