"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!", also known as "Let It Snow", is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945. It was written in Hollywood, California during a heat wave as Cahn and Styne imagined cooler conditions.
One of the best-selling songs of all time, "Let It Snow!" has been covered countless times. Due to its seasonal theme, it is commonly regarded as a Christmas song. However, the song makes no reference to the holiday in its lyrics.
