You're going to help keep us WARM?! This warm twist may actually convince me to take my first ever Polar Bear Plunge.

The usually frigid tradition of jumping into the icy cold Atlantic ocean has not previously appealed to me. But this New Year's Day, Atlantic City is adding a bonfire to the festivities on the beach, reports.

That means we don't have to freeze our skivvies off! You can just wrap up in a towel or a blanket and cozy up to the fire before and after you take the plunge!

The 28th Annual Atlantic City Polar Bear Plunge will take place in at Landshark Bar & Grill, just in front of Resorts Casino Hotel, at noon on January 1, 2019. It will benefit Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City.
