BULGARIANS JUMP INTO ICY WATER ON EPIPHANY DAY IN SOFIA.
Young Bulgarians jump into icy water as they compete to reach a cross
in the middle of a lake in Sofia on Epiphany day, January 6, 2002. It
is believed that the man who is the first to grab the cross, thrown
into the water by an Eastern Orthodox priest, will be healthy
throughout the New Year. REUTERS/Dimitar Dilkoff
