19 January 2014. Hey, Hey, Hey, Fat Albert’s Jumpin’ in a Ice Hole Today! It’s Orthodox Epiphany!

00 Epiphany 2014. 19.01.14


00 Orthodox Epiphany on Lake Chebarkul. Chelyabinsk Oblast. 19.01.14

Blessing the ice hole on Lake Chebarkul in Chelyabinsk Oblast. That’s where the meteorite fell earlier in 2013. Betcha they’re all wearing their long johns


It’s Orthodox Epiphany (and here)! Chop a hole in that there ice, cross yourself, and hop in! It only counts if you duck yourself completely three times. If you ask nicely, maybe, one of your Puerto Rican friends will bring their stilts… after all, it’s Epiphany, which is Tres Reyes (Three Kings) in Spanish countries. Besides, don’t you want someone who KNOWS how to make GOOD hot coffee nearby (no self-respecting upright Spanish person would serve you No es café, as they’d lose face)? Brrr… I’ve done it… it’s COLD!

Have a lovely feastday… it’s the end of the Svyatki holy season, so, feast, feast, feast! God wills it!
