the 19th of January the Russians celebrated the Russian Orthodox festival of Epiphany to commemorate the baptism of Jesus Christ.
It was cold but I didn’t want to miss it so I braved the elements. I wore layer upon layer and went out there with a group to watch it.
While watching I couldn’t stop thinking to myself how crazy they are but then I don’t get it. I don’t totally understand it but I appreciated it.
Here are some photos from my day and a video. (I meant to post these yesterday but after 4 and a half hours outside I just felt so tired after that!)
