Every year in the first day of the year, Jan. 1st, in all or most Western countries and perhaps these days some other countries as well, people who live by sea have a little event called Polar Bear Swim. It actually is not a swim. It's Get In, Get Wet, Get Out as I call it or 3G (G. G. G.!) Nevertheless it's brave from people to get naked in this cold weather.
In this year's Polar Bear Swim in B. C. people had less difficulty to join the event. It was not really cold and there was no rain or snow. I'm posting just one photo after twenty days.
(Photo: People with cloths and some just with swimming trunk are seen in Semihamoo Bay in southern British Columbia in the first day of the new decade. It was not a very cold day but it was windy. You could notice that by the waves and the kid in green jacket with the hood on)
