Calendar LISTINGS YOU CAN PLAN YOUR LIFE BY! > ICE ICE BABY The Cosmo's winter skating comes with scenic views of the Strip. search of Christmas lights—this isn't Nebraska. Instead, check out Vegas' best and brightest light attractions, like the 2.5-mile Glittering Lights display at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the classic Ethel M's Christmas cactus garden or Bellagio's holiday botanical garden with a 45-foot, 80,000-pound tree, polar bears and 45,000 poinsettias. Looking for something a bit more active? Lace up the ol' ice skates and zip over to the new Caesars Palace "chalet" or the seasonal rinks at the Cosmopolitan, Gold Spike or Venetian. And if that's not enough holiday cheer for you, check out Santa like you've never seen him before— underwater—at the Silverton's aquarium or in the shipwreck at Mandalay Bay's Shark Reef. That's right. A scuba-diving Santa. In the desert. I told you we get a little crazy. –Leslie Ventura LIVE MUSIC Thumb, Loose Change 12/20, 9 pm, $7-$10.
