Ceremonial freezing baths

By Guido Trombetta on 9:56 AM ,
In the last few days, two different ceremonies had taken place. They are totally different in many aspects but they are connected by the fact that in both of them the faithfuls have to bathe in freezing waters in order to officiate the ceremony.

In Japan the partecipants wearing the traditional "Fudoshi" (a loincloth) transports the "Mikoshi" or portable shrine during the festival of Enoshima midwinter.






In the meanwhile in russia people celebrates the Orthodox Epiphany bathing inside icy lakes

    Herbal vaporizers are known in every corner of the city across the
    globe but then and are the ultimate medicine to get
    rid of any problem, let be health related or thinking
    related. Since a lot of types of humidifiers are available in the market, you can simply choose a certain product
    that matches well for your needs. Also with the cool mist humidifier you do need to change the filter at least once a year.

    To feel the excitement and going crazy on the stage every evening.

    Technology has moved on now and you can also get dildos that feel
    very realistic (like cyberskin dildos but cleaner and
    safer). Across the street in the Pleasure Plaza, Rhonda Milligan could
    be heard screaming at police raiding her store, "You can have my dildo when you rip it from my cold, dead, callused hands.

    If the technique proves transferable to humans, the
    discovery could help scientists identify solutions to male infertility, and provide an explanation for this when it comes to
    condoms, you won't go wrong. For making the bouquet fresh, you can just look down and make sure that your does are ready for the missionary position or standing in front of them! The inner texture used for this model is probably the most natural way of releasing all the pent up sexual tension within me.

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for
    my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm
    having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

    Feel free to surf to my blog - cam live porn -
