Epiphany bathing has become a kind of common ritual for daredevils. The fact is that it seems to them that washing in such water will cleanse all their sins. Sometimes this habit turns into window dressing. When you just need to show everyone how brave you are if you swim in such cold weather. And these bathing have nothing to do with the Orthodox holiday called Vodokreshchi on January 19.

It got to the point that Metropolitan Joseph of Kurgan and Belozersk called this bathing a secular entertainment. He recommends that priests only consecrate water in Temples and reservoirs. But this does not interfere with the folk custom to wash anywhere.
