Time Out says

Few holiday traditions are as entrenched as an icy spin around Boston Common’s Frog Pond. The rink hosts a steady, multigenerational throng of newbies and aspiring Kristi Yamaguchis alike, while those who prefer to stay on non-slippery ground can snuggle up beside the snack bar with a hot chocolate and free Wi-Fi. Half-price college nights lure in clusters of students home for the semester break. Just be sure to bundle up—a wait is inevitable.
