LANKE, GERMANY - Ice swimmers dressed up in holiday attire swam in the Obersee in Lanke, about 31 miles north of Berlin, Germany, on Dec. 22. The swimmers, who dress up for the annual event, claim swimming in cold water is good for the body's blood circulation. Due to warmer temperatures this year, the lake did not freeze over.
