The feast of the Baptism of the Lord in Russia (17 pics)

I would never put my feet into the water this cold.
But the Russians make big lines in order to get into this ice water.
There are strong traditions for ice swimming and dousing with cold water in Russia. They are done for health benefits, as a ritual of the Orthodox Church for the feast of the Baptism of Our Lord.
