Siberians wake up after Winter

Why not, as far as the adults are concerned, but I don't think inflicting same on a baby (naked in the cold to boot) is a good idea.

They also like to mark the end of the skiing season by skiing in bathing costumes. I notice that some of them have remained fully clothed this time though.
