Today in Kalofer, Bulgaria, a popular event associated with Orthodox Christian Epiphany was held. A cross was thrown into the river, and young men dove to retrieve it. Similar celebrations were held in many places around the world.

From the article:
Quote
Traditionally, an Eastern Orthodox priest throws a cross in the river and it is believed that the one who retrieves it will be healthy through the year.
