Russian Orthodox believers take a dip into chilly water of the lake Sacred to celebrate Epiphany on January 19, 2012 commemorating the baptism of Jesus Christ.
This is a student from the 4th class of our school. He is very brave because it was - 41 C.

He certainly is brave. I can't even imagine how that sort of cold would feel. I guess the water is warmer than the air. However it would still be painful to be in the water I think.

Yes,he is. The temperature of the water is +3C. I was about to do the same this year but somebody stopped me by sending me to a business trip.
Frankly speaking, I don't regret.
