“Let It Snow! is a beloved Christmas tune with an interesting history. Despite it now being instantly associated with the Christmas season, the song does not actually allude to any holiday. Perhaps even more amusing is the fact that the song was written in California during a heat wave!

“Let It Snow!” Lyrics

Oh the weather outside is frightful,

But the fire is so delightful,

And since we’ve no place to go,

Let It Snow! [x3]

It doesn’t show signs of stopping,

And I’ve bought some corn for popping,

The lights are turned way down low,

Let It Snow! [x3]

When we finally kiss goodnight,

How I’ll hate going out in the storm!

But if you’ll really hold me tight,

All the way home I’ll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,

And, my dear, we’re still

good-bying,

But as long as you love me so,

Let It Snow! [x3]
