So what if Houston isn't exactly prone to having white Christmases? We can still have an outdoor ice rink during the holiday season with The Ice at Discovery Green. Talking about the success of last year's Ice, Discovery Green Conservancy President Guy Hagstette tells us, "From 80-degree weather to a special December evening with snow flurries, outdoor ice skating was...enjoyable...for Houstonians of all ages." And since the ice floor is kept at a frosty 22 degrees with recycled water from Kinder Lake below and powered by renewable energy, everyone from budding Apolo Ohnos to skaters with knees caked with frosted flakes can glide away with a guilt-free carbon skate print. Special events, including holiday-themed film screenings and live concerts, are planned. Through January 18. 1500 McKinney.

Mondays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 26. Continues through Jan. 18, 2009
