The Story of The White Christmas Dip

The White Christmas Dip started in 2008 and began on Christmas day morning when John White, who had recently been diagnosed with cancer, was visiting some of his family, who all decided to join the Spartans in their Annual Christmas morning swim. John White, along with son, also named John White and nephews Tommy Baker, Harry Baker, Berni Mendieta and Joe Hardwick found some old fancy dress outfits and decided to partake in fancy dress.
