The Polar Bear Plunge, where participants jump into a cold water body, is an activity usually held in the Northern Hemisphere. It is a popular New Year’s Day tradition in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Netherlands. In these countries, many people organize and participate in a Polar Bear Plunge for charity.
Too cold? Celebrate Swim a Lap Day in June instead.
How to Celebrate?
- If you are brave enough to participate, find a pond, lake, the sea or just fill up your bath with freezing cold water and take a plunge.
- Support someone who is participating in a Polar Bear Plunge for charity.
- In the Southern Hemisphere? Then you probably want to celebrate Polar Bear Plunge Day every day until the summer is over.
