Naked Baptism Day in Rusia

Russian baptism day 1

In Russia there are a few traditions for a Jesus Baptism Day. This day is celebrated in 19th of January and the night before the main tradition is to go bathing in some natural source of water.
So at this day usually the local rivers and lakes are full of the people wishing to commit this ritual, not minding the temperature of the air and of the water, which is usually just a half degree up the freezing point at this time of the year.
Also, many people in Russia believe that the water being picked up at Baptism Day has some sort of magic. It can be kept next 365 days without getting any smell or become rotten. So many collect the water at that night and keep it at home, drinking it from time to time during all the year.
