The feast of Epiphany marks the end of the 12 days of Orthodox Christmas (January 7) according to the Julian calendar and is one of the biggest holidays in the Christian world to commemorate the baptism of Jesus Christ in the River Jordan.

Every year on January 19, church members gather for submerging themselves in special areas dug out of icy rivers, ponds, or lakes.
