The Epiphany Baptisms Celebration on Lake Razliv

In Orthodox Christianity, the celebration of the Baptism of the Lord is a holiday honoured on the same level as Christmas. It is one of the many Orthodox holidays celebrated between the end of December and mid-January, and a day when many believers go church. RTG TV host Alexander Uvarov attended the service at the Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul in Sestroretsk. The baptism holiday’s traditions, the blessing of water and jumping into freezing water through an ice hole are all in RTG TV’s new programme.
