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:
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.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
