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!

If you found this page, you have entered the magical world of stories, confessions, articles, poems, and all the beautiful aspects of human creativity and imagination. The First Person Magazine and its team are happy to announce the start of the new and fulfilling year of monthly issues, starting with September and its focus on the changes in our life, brought in by the global pandemic and, more specifically, “Quarantine.”
These changes affected our lives unexpectedly and thoroughly. If you are currently in quarantine and feel lonely or you feel like this issue has been a part of your 2020 life, know that you are not alone in these dark times and find some light in the stories!
