Ice Skating galore!

Posted Feb 20 2018, 3:05 pm

Since the Winter Olympics is in full swing, I thought I’d share THIS tidbit of Victorian history. Around & around & around they go, those lovely Victorian folks, young and old,  in their crinolines & oh-so-elegant finery.

 

 

Back then [like today] ice skating was an enchanting pastime, but we can all thank a dashing fella named Jackson Haines for the winter sport we now know as ‘Figure Skating’ …Yep, in the 1850s, he began combining his much-loved, on-ground dance movements with his second-love of ice skating. Of course, the details are more detailed, such as the ‘type’ of edgings he made in ice, etc…but suffice to say, this chap is known the world over as ‘The Father of Figure Skating’.

 

And now, as you watch the U.S. try to snag another gold medal in THIS sport, or even glide out onto the ice yourself, y’all can smile & do a twirl in Jackson Haines honor!
