Freeze fame

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - CONTENT - Adam Starkey

Feel a chill set­tling into your mood? That’ll be the jovial Christ­mas spirit ex­pelling its dy­ing breath, leav­ing you to grind away at life’s mo­not­o­nous stone for an­other year, stripped of carol singers and fairy lights. But Jan­uary isn’t all cold snaps and bro­ken res­o­lu­tions, for even af­ter the pop-up sea­sonal rinks have been packed away, ice-skat­ing re­mains a pop­u­lar pas­time. Es­pe­cially among sadis­tic spec­ta­tors who love the sight of tod­dlers, teenagers and ner­vous dads fail­ing, fall­ing and frac­tur­ing bits of them­selves. But there is no need to feel guilty. It’s Jan­uary that’s bit­ter, and cer­tainly not you.
