Weather may spoil Dutch New Years dips
The unseasonably cold weather in the Netherlands has led to some New Year’s dips being cancelled. There were meant to be 81 places in the Netherlands where those hardy enough, or just foolhardy, would be able to take a cold plunge in the water outdoors.
So far, Dutch food brand Unox, which sponsors the dips, has announced 17 cancellations. There are now just 64 places where New Year’s dips will be held, and it is not being ruled out that more cancellations will be announced on New Year’s Day itself.
