What do you want for Christmas this year? Well to be honest we’d settle for a proper winter full of snow and temperatures that seldom slide below -5 °C , but seeing as how we’ve been more naughty than nice in 2015, we’ll have to let St.Nick sort it out with Mother Nature. If we are by some Yuletide miracle rewarded for any perceived good deeds of the past year, then we’d certainly like to take advantage of a winter wonderland of outdoor ice skating rinks and snow covered ski resorts.However, even if temperatures remain above freezing you’ll still be able to practice your hockey stops, deliver a few ‘rocks’ at a local curling hall or, best of all, take in a thrilling run at nearby Sigulda’s bobsleigh track. If, however, you’re not exactly a fan or participatory winter sports you can always join thousands of hockey fans at Arena Riga and watch Dynamo Riga play on home ice. Still not your cup of holiday grog? Then take a stroll through one or all of Riga’s three Christmas markets and soak up all of the Yuletide ambience you can handle. Riga In Your Pocket wishes all its readers a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
