Winter Nudism - cold is no problem.
Winter Nudism or not not as popular as summer, but there is one day of the year, who is trying not to miss a single Russian naturist. The nineteenth of January, the Orthodox world celebrated "Epiphany". On this day (to be precise, 06.01. old style) naked Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist, which later received his name the prefix "the Baptist."
It happened in the Jordan river near Jerusalem. If "baptism" to translate the Greek, we get "immersion". This event gave rise to the tradition of mass popular bathing. But in Russia this day is the middle of winter. The water temperature in the ponds under the ice just above zero. Nevertheless, man, even completely naked, this temperature for five to ten minutes is tolerated without any consequences. In addition, due to the difference negative temperature and positive temperature of the water there is a great tempering effect in the blood, there is a strong adrenaline rush. In this way the latent force of our body rewards the body for taking care of his physical health. Tempers!
