Ice Skating: A Winter Staple

By | December 11, 2017

Winter is fast approaching, and with it comes the holiday season. Nothing gets me more in the holiday spirit than the buzz of New York City’s Rockefeller Center, with the grand Christmas tree, gorgeous decorations and majestic ice skating rink. I love heading into the city on the PATH train to share the magic of the holidays. Of course, it’s an absolute must for me to lace on the skates each and every year. I’m no pro on the ice, but something about the skating rink just instills a bold, “can-do” attitude. It’s exciting to be out there with everyone in either Central Park, Rockefeller Center, the Seaport, or even here back across the river in New Jersey.

Overlooked through most of the year, a trip to the skating rink can be a very romantic outing too, especially if you or your significant other is a novice on the ice. Lend each other a hand, get close, and cuddle with some hot chocolate after a session on the rink. Maybe you’ll discover a hidden talent… or you’ll at least get a lot of contact if you’re picking each other back up!

Once the holidays have died down, the fun doesn’t end either. I’m a big hockey fan, so I head to the local skating rinks for high school hockey. Maybe I save up for a trip to an NHL arena. It’s a thrill to sit down by the glass and watch the professionals play the game. The Devils fly up and down the skating rink in pursuit of the Stanley Cup, and I wouldn’t miss a second of the action. However, it’s just as enjoyable (if not more so), to visit the local ice and see some of the stars of the future. School sports often carry a more relaxed, open atmosphere where fans unbridled passion really is on display.

In my area, there are truly some elite teams that are a lot of fun to watch. If I can’t be on the skating rink, I’ll be right in the front row bleachers watching in awe and dreaming about the next time I can step onto the ice!
