Everyone has their own holiday traditions, however this has to be one of the most extreme. A group of Russian divers has braved freezing conditions to celebrate the coming New Year underwater. Divers from far eastern city of Vladivostok placed a decorated New Year tree on the bottom of the nearly-frozen Shchitovaya Bay in the Ussuriysky Gulf.
Despite the water temperature being zero degrees Celsius (32 Fahrenheit) and the surface of the bay covered with ice, the divers decided to celebrate with an underwater ceremony.
Drinking champagne from the bottle and performing a traditional Russian round dance around the New Year tree underwater, the dive was the fifth time the Vladivostok divers decided to conduct the celebration.
