Съ праздникомъ
Happy feast of the Theophany to members of the Orthodox Churches of Russia and Serbia and the Ukrainian Catholic Church in western Ukraine. Today the Russians remember the baptism of Our Lord in the River Jordan by going out in the really wicked cold Russian winter and cutting a hole in the nearest river or lake ice to bless holy water for the year.
