Supposedly a Latvian word meaning "Lure of the animal."<br>
This is untrue. (Source, my Father a native Latvian)<br>
This made-up term was popularized on an episode of "Seinfeld" called "The Conversion" where the character Kramer converted to the Latvian Orthodox Church.<br>
In real life, approximately two-third of Latvians are Lutheran and about a third Catholic. A small minority are Russian Orthodox or Jewish.<br>
If the Latvian Orthodox Church actually exists in any form it would be a very small minority.
