Today’s Christmas Carol: Let it Snow

Let It Snow

Where I live, it snowed almost a foot. That, plus a few other things which made the last couple days super busy, is why I didn’t post on Thursday or Friday. I was also a little lazy ….

Let It Snow was written by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne in July 1945.

This song expresses what is often my state of mind … just LET IT SNOW!!! πŸ™‚ I love when it snows, especially around Christmas. I love sledding and making snowmen and snow-icecream. I love how beautiful it looks outside when everything is coated with white. It drives me crazy when (as often happens) we have a green Christmas. I feel like I’ve been cheated out of the whole experience! πŸ™‚

The Lyrics:

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

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! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

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 goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

A few versions:

    1. Actually, they are Christmas carols. “A Christmas carol is a song whose lyrics are on the theme of Christmas, and which is traditionally sung on Christmas itself or during the surrounding holiday season.” The Christmas Song and Let It Snow both are traditionally sung on Christmas and during the surrounding holiday season.

  1. I LOVE that Kellyn! Quiet True… I always thought A ‘Carol’ was a song that was based for Christmas time, and along the lines of Christianity… Are you saying that a carol is a song that is ‘just’ along the lines of christmas? or what I said above?
