Crimea Orthodox Epiphany

(Two women cross themselves while bathing in the Black See during a traditional Epiphany celebration as the temperature dropped to about -6 degrees (21 degrees Fahrenheit) in Sevastopol, Crimea, Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2021 during epiphany. Water that is blessed by a cleric on Epiphany is considered holy and pure until next year’s celebration, and is believed to have special powers of protection and healing. The Russian Orthodox Church follows the old Julian calendar, according to which Epiphany falls on Jan. 19. Photo: AP Photo)
