Photos: Christians celebrate Epiphany

People dive into icy water as they compete to grab a cross in the middle of a lake as part of Epiphany celebrations on Sunday, January 6, in Sofia, Bulgaria. It is believed that the first person to grab the cross, thrown into the water by an Eastern Orthodox priest, will be healthy throughout the following year. The feast day celebrates the revelation of God in human form as Jesus Christ.
