We were all dreaming of a white Christmas, but of course that didn't transpire between the 91 and the 1. But for hourly intervals at the Irvine Spectrum, you can at least pretend you're in Rockefeller Center, zipping around with a frostbitten nose. And you'll have a legit reason to wear that cable-knit scarf and kicky beret your Aunt Ethel gave you for Christmas. The rink is 44 feet wide by 72 feet long, with ice that is 1.5 inches thick, so yeah, it's just enough to get going. But heed our warning: There will be no horseplay tolerated. So those of you with mischief in your eyes, thinking you're off the hook because Santa is no longer on watch, there are to be no spins, jumps, cross-checking, or playing tag and keep-away. Have a swell time!
