Prague's freezing Twelfth Night tradition

A group of men took the plunge for the traditional Three Kings swim in the Czech Republic's Vltava River to celebrate the end of the Christmas period. The swimmers paraded through the streets of Prague before taking a boat ride to the middle of the river and jumping in. The tradition is for the Epiphany feast day, which is held annually on January 6 and marks the end of the 12 days of Christmas. The day recalls the journey of the three Magi, also known as kings, to find Jesus in Bethlehem and present him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
