Hundreds of people in the UK and Ireland braved the chilly weather while wearing only swimming costumes or underwear as they went on to partake in the annual Christmas Day Dip.
As The Daily Star points out, the tradition has become increasingly popular in recent years, and many participate in it as part of various charity events.
Some revelers also donned colourful festive costumes as they plunged into the icy waters.
