seriously why

During any particularly cold winter here we still usually get up to 15-17º during the day and never go below freezing overnight. Meanwhile we are in the midst of a serious drought and energy crisis, with the local government asking residents to cut back on their water and electricity usage. Heck, they are even restricting the Christmas lights to 6-11 pm. BUT they have installed not one but TWO outdoor ice skating rinks in the city for the holiday season. What the actual…??? Imagine the cost of maintaining these two completely unnecessary installations. Why the hell should there be ice skating in the south of Spain? Why is our city council adopting this completely foreign concept… and who even knows how to ice skate here? This doesn’t belong here, especially now. Honestly, the mind reels.
