This is a Russian Orthodox high day, Epiphany. Russian church uses Grigorean calendar, so all the dates are moved 2 weeks apart from Western world. We have Christmas on the 7th of January for example.

Yesterday lots of people, mostly those who are in trust (or just some ones drunk) did bathing in rivers and lakes. It's quite popular here, the Church said that all waters are holy this day. So no affect to health. On my untrusty mind such action could be done indeed but when you have your body prepaired by regular trainings. So that crazy getting into ice waters don't seem too nice for health on my mind. And I hadn't to but almost had such an idea in my mind))

 

Seems like a young persons sport indeed? Can't see too many 80 year olds out there? As long as the church uses it as "means of Grace" and not "means of salvation" seems perfectly harmless and fun.

In classic man's-man fashion Putin never lost his stoicism when the ice cubes attacked his weapon of mass distruction.

Thanks M of N. He is doing great. Did have a moment where I thought "If this happened a century ago, or in some poor region, he might be dead now". Sobering thought. Thank the Lord for good, competent, medical science.

I had an issue of the same kind with my kid when he was nearly 4 yo. Got common fever with some temp, nose leak and so on. Than once in the night my wife was woked up by kind's voice. He had really tight breath with heavy sound.  Was too afraid being about not breathing. We got afraid too and the wife called to private kid clinic for ER. An ambulance came in about half an hour. We lived 10 kilometers outside of the city and the clinic was inside but closer to our direction. Also a good thing there was no traffic at 4 AM. The doctor came with a really large medi box, made basic check and took a nebulaizer. Filled it up with a stuff which makes breath passes wider and takes stresses off them. After 5-6 minuted the things turned out smooth. Doc explained that the fever initiated stress of breath passes. Said no need to continue with that "hard" medicament if no real troubles. But prescribed to buy it together with a nebulaizer and have it handy anywhere we go with the kid. So we did. There was one more such case in about a year or two and we knew what to do. Also doc's explanations were the kid will grow up to a sertain age and the shape of his passes will change. So such risk will go away in the future. Time showed out he was right. The kid is 17 now and hasn't had breath issues since those times.

Yes, many youngsters do sport nowadays. It's sure good but I easy can see a funny basement of that happening. The society here was pressed down with Socialist morals and rules for many decades. With strong shortage of stuff a normal man needs every day and night. It's just difficult to imagine even for me now that people had to check many shops looking for a roll of toilet paper for example. And so on. The reasons were large expenses in a Cold War competition, space technologies and no doubt not too efficient plan kind economy. So now, actually for nearly 20 last years, lots of high quality and attractive looking merchandise filled up the country. And the society actively play a game of "competition in consumption". Each other enjoys to demonstrate how "cool" he is. Sport seems to me as one of the aspects. There were just a few people in 80's years who did ski, bycicling etc. Those few existed though, went for a ride into forest with uncomfortable wooden ski on. But later, when you can go to a bright-lighted shop and buy a pair of EXPENSIVE modern ski, a jacket, a pair of gloves and so on, many do. The same with really large amounts of "fitness holes" as people call gims here. They openes here and there every year. People use to buy a year pass to. But actually make 3-5 visits and loose interest. So as in many other cases, you can see a top of an iceberg but sume dull matters are below the water.
