Thousands gathered to take a chilly New Year's Day dip on a beach in Scheveningen near The Hague to mark their first dip into the sea in 2015. Although the temperature was low, the annual tradition continues to grow in popularity with over a thousand people lining up and storming together down the beach. While many of the participants got out of the water as quickly as possible, some decided to remain in the sea for a little bit longer.
