There is a special day in Russia - 19 January. You may be very surprised, if you'll walk this day near lakes and rivers and will see a lot of people, who really want to get into this cold ice water. Women, men, children, old people...beautiful girls. They dive without hesitation into this ice hole with water. There is belief, that you'll be cured of all diseases and Lord will forgieve your sins. And of course it's tradition, which unites people, so many people do this not of religion reasons, but because they like it or just for fun.
