The Traditional Christmas Day Swim was thought to be started in 1970 by a group of friends who had the crazy idea of taking a cold plunge. Since then, the traditional Christmas event has grown to be one of the largest, unorganised Christmas Traditions in the world attracting tens of thousands of people every year.
This website was created back in 2012 to help give an archive of photographs and video for future generations and to help document the years gone by. So far, we have been photographing from 2007 but from 1970 to 2016, we are still on the hunt for photographs to place upon this site for future generations.
It is also important to remember, that this event is not organised and is especially not organised by the operators of this website. This is a real Christmas tradition that has been going on for over 50 years! A truly special thing I am sure you will agree.
Have you been to the Christmas Day Swim before? We would love to hear what you think and get your photographs! Sign our guestbook below and please send us your photographs if you have any!by
