New Year’s Eve: they swim in the sea dressed as Santa Claus

(ANSA) – CEFALÙ, DECEMBER 31 – They met on the beach of Cefalù. Some were dressed as Santa Claus, others wore Christmas hats. There were about twenty of them. So, at a signal, they all dived into the sea to greet the year that ends and welcome the one that begins.

The auspicious New Year’s Eve bath is a tradition promoted and organized by Kepha Nuoto. On a bright day, the sun eased the rigors of the merry swim. .
