If you travel over the holidays, it can be tricky to find activities on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. One trick we've learned is to look for zoos, ice rinks, movie theaters, ski slopes, and of course public parks.

        My kids love to go ice skating. They're patiently waiting for our pond to freeze over so they can skate this year.

        Great point about holiday challenges, especially if you're traveling in countries that don't traditionally celebrate Christmas, etc. Planning ahead is essential making it "feel like Christmas" when somewhere like Nepal or Saudi Arabia!

        we got to skate on christmas day, too. The temperature dropped to 12 degrees where we were in the adirondacks and the lakes froze enough for us to get some free skating in. very cool!

        A 2010 study appeared to show lawn care inputs were balanced by way of the carbon sequestration benefits of turf, and they may not get contributors to anthropogenic global increased temperatures. [46][47]

        However, lawns with huge maintenance (mowing, irrigation, and leaf blowing) and high fertilization rates contain a net emission of carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide that have already large global warming potential. [48]

        Through ecological techniques including organic property management, the impact of lawns are usually reduced. Such methods include the effective use of native grasses, sedges, and decreased herbs; higher mowing techniques; decreased volume irrigation, 'grasscycling' grass clippings ready; an integrated pest management process; exclusive organic fertilizer and compost take advantage of; and including a variety for trees, shrubs, perennials, and many other plants surrounding the lawn. A positive benefit of a healthy lawn has it been filters contaminants and prevents runoff together with erosion of bare soil.

        Much better environmental criticisms, some gardeners challenge the aesthetic value of turf, especially in climates and cultures unlike the lawn's homeland in Great britain.
