More than 30 baptismal fonts, ice holes used for water consecration on Epiphany Day, will be organized in Yakutia this year, despite the 50-degree frost in some regions of the republic. It is assumed that about 60 thousand people will take part in bathing; the frost does not frighten them. Fonts are planned to be organized on the Lena River, the Pole of Cold and on the shores of the Arctic Ocean.
