    SKATING AND THE NORTH POLE... go together like a peppermint stick in hot cocoa, but, of course, there is only one sort of skating that springs to most minds, when the North Pole or Kris Kringle or snowmen are mentioned: Ice skating. That's because countless Christmas books and movies and TV specials have depicted characters spinning around a frozen pond or rink, and if they're not technically wearing blades on the bottom of their feetsies, they're able to put in a few good figure eights by the power of their soles alone. So when you introduce roller skating into the Santa-fun equation, it can cause a pause, but one that doesn't last for too long.

There are more on the October calendar, too, should you find yourself doing a fall color drive around the mountains and looking for a spot to stretch a leg (and by "stretch a leg," we mean roll at the alfresco rink). More info? You got it: It's all hokey-pokey-ing right here.
