It has been a tradition that children are learning how to skate clinging to and pushing a chair. It is probably universal in the cold regions.

Oh, fijn en grappig, nooit heb ik dit gezien, maar in Nederland moet -zeker te weten- elk kind schaatsen leren, en zoals we zeggen, “wat Hansje niet leert, leert Hans nooit.” – misschien kennen de Nederlanders een ander gezegde?
Je foto is erg toepasselijk bij de huidige dag- we hebben overnacht sneeuw en masse gekregen- en ik moet onmiddelijk weer schuivelen/scheppen gaan want de huisbewoners hebben hier heel strenge wetten- vanwege mogelijke ongevallen !

This is funny. I have never seen anyone do this, and I gew up in Chicago where we had plenty of ice in winter.
