Early in the morning of the laziest day in the week, residents of the Dnieper rushed towards the city beaches. No nasty polusne palugod, nor subzero temperatures, and especially the lack of ice, did not prevent “polar bears” plunge into cold water to mark the Epiphany.
They say that water in this day has a special power – cleans karma and charges positive energy. Surprisingly, those who strongly believe in this miracle (or just want to try something new), gathered very little in comparison with the previous year, reports the Informant. Whether many took a dip early in the morning, or preferred to stay in warm beds, but the island Monastery gathered a little more than a dozen “morikov”. And for a long time on the beach, none of them was late: he dived and was immediately wrapped in warm puhovichok.
We’re almost upset, and not take your emotions from the chilling treatments, as noted desyatok of people near the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist at Abrienas Sichevskyi. But here you jump in the water dared only the most persistent. Most people watched from the side, removing all the mobile phone. However, none of those who decided to take the plunge, haven’t regretted it. Direct proof – a smile from ear to ear from emotion. Whatever it was, but it’s a great opportunity to get myself feeling a little “reboot”. In case you are thinking to join the “morikami” – here you will find the list of specially equipped places for bathing.
