Strips for Jesus

… And Frozen Lake Dip

Vladimir Putin is not losing his religion — he IS getting half naked for it though … in public.

The Russian President took off a perfectly warm sheepskin coat and boots to take a dip in an icy lake about 250 miles north of Moscow. He wasn’t alone. Putin was commemorating the baptism of Jesus in Orthodox Christian tradition … and people do it all over Russia every year.

This was the first time Putin publicly marked the Epiphany.

His favorite horse was spared from the bone-chilling tradition.
