It was 17 nights before Christmas and all through the house,
not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that St Nicholas would soon be there.
Unfortunately they were dripping wet,
and it's cold outside so they were frozen you can bet.
The adults were in swimsuits on the frozen lake not in their beds,
while visions of ice cubes danced in their heads.
And Mamma in her kerchief and I in my cap,
Had just settled in for a long winters nap.
***WAKE UP, GET OUT OF THE WATER NOW, OR YOU'LL FREEZE TO DEATH***
It's Back! The ice has frozen earlier than usual and it's time again for the Polar Bear Plunge, we've had technical difficulties the past two years, so it's time once again to bring out the chainsaws, built a giant fire out on the ice and take turns jumping in the lake in our annual tradition!
We're also going to add a White Elephant Gift Exchange to the mix. Bring something from your house that needs a new home. Wrap it up good. We draw numbers, and pick gifts in that order. However instead of opening a new gift, you have the option of stealing a previous gift. The person who brings the most stolen gift will win a 6 pack of beer to take home with them.
Please bring a towel, swimsuit, change of clothes, robe, flip flops etc. I have a hot tub, but I wouldn't suggest jumping from the lake to the hot tub.
Also, bring whatever you want to drink, and some form of delicious HOMEMADE dish to pass.
We live about 30 minutes from Ann Arbor, right off of the I-94 and Sargent Rd Exit 145. I will email specific directions the day before the event.
