about

Let it Snow was written by the lyricist Sammy Cahn and the Broadway songwriter Jule Styne in 1945. It was first recorded in 1945 by Vaughn Monroe. Now the song is recorded by many music artists. Dean Martin’s version is the best known.

“‘Let It Snow’ was written on Hollywood and Vine on the hottest day of the year.

In the book of Songwriters on Songwriting by Paul Zollo:
Sammy Cahn said to Jule Stein, “Why don’t we go down to the beach and cool off?” He said, “Why don’t we stay here and write a winter song.” I went to the typewriter writing ‘Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and since we’ve got no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.’ Now why 3 ‘let it snow’s’? Why not 2 or 4? Because 3 is lyric.”
