When the most popular ritual began in 1978, a celebration took place at the Latvian radio, which was also a direct connection to the "microphone". That is, in the fall semester, I turned to one of our favorite radio speakers, Osama Andrekson, with whom we have been conducting "microphone" programs for more than 10 years, as well as the survey events of the annual survey. All Cinderella's good wishes, as we called her, came from the end, as were baked bread buns, candy boxes, patterned gloves, socks and all sorts of other good things.
