On New Years day the fiance participated in the polar plunge for the first time. His friend has been plunging for the past five years. We were lucky that it was a mild 50 degrees outside. The turn out for the event was incredible. I'd say there were well over 150 people there. The fiance was very nervous to do the plunge but in the end he ran in and out of the water like a champ! Afterward my parents acted like he had saved a family from a burning building- he was their hero for the day.
I think we've found a new tradition for New Years.
