Christmas at, well, Christmas

In mid-summer, Melvin and I enjoyed "Christmas in July" at Progressive Field and elsewhere in the Indians organization.  Now the team has come up with another novel idea: "Snow Days."

For five-plus weeks the ballpark has been turned into a winter funderland.  There is a ten-lane snow tubing hill, quarter-mile skating path, 3,000 square-foot snow maze and more.  It is Cleveland in December, so the Indians have turned on the heaters in the team dugout and there is a fire pit on the home run porch.  While the concessions don't match the in-season choices, guests aren't limited to hot chocolate.  And if you need something stronger, there is a happy hour most evenings.  The whole thing runs through January 2 and folks can even ring in the new year—complete with dinner, dancing and fireworks—at Progressive Field.

Pretty damn cool, if you ask me.  And a good opportunity to send solstice-time greetings from both of us and best wishes for 2011.
