The Day of Bread in Āraiši Windmill

For Latvians, the biggest celebration in July was Jēkabi or Saimnieku diena (Farmers’ Day).

Right around Jēkabi the harvest began and a hardworking farmer was that farmer, who could serve the first batch of baked bread on Jēkabi. That is the reason why around Jēkabs Day you will smell bread in Āraiši Windmill, the bread bakers will be celebrated and a lot of guests who love rye bread will arrive. On this day the people with names Jēkabs and Anna will be greeted, because those are the names of the ancient farmers and their wives.
