Everywhere you go for the Christmas season, Santa is complacently taking orders from kids on his lap while parents feverishly snap pics of their little ones, but how about something different? Try hanging with Santa up on his feet ice skating away at the J. F. Kennedy Arena in Rome.

Every year Santa somehow finds the time to spend a couple of hours just before Christmas Day with the kids of Rome and the best part? It's FREE (unless you don't own skates in which case the nominal $3 skate rental is your admission.) Who knew Santa was that agile?

So, if you're not shopping like mad people on the Saturday before Christmas between 1-230p and are looking to occupy the kids and make some memories that are a bit different than the norm, don't miss this!
