Let it snow - 16th December 2011

Today when Charlie and I were having one of our little chats, I asked him what his favourite thing about Christmas is...
"Snowball fights," he said with conviction "and presents" he added. He truly believes that Christmas means snow. He can't really remember any other Christmases and is picking up most of his information from books, cards and TV. For Charlie, snow is as much a part of Christmas as reindeer, baubles and the nativity.
I'm with Charlie on this one, I think that it should really be snowing. If it's going to be Christmas next week, it really needs to start snowing and not the gruesome sleet of this morning. I would much rather huge, gigantic snowflakes that fall gently from the sky and settle in a matter of minutes. Charlie and I also would like the right sort of snow for making snowballs and snowmen.

 "Let it snow" is also one of my favourite Christmas songs, I never tire of it and although I love Dean Martin's version, Frank's just has the edge with that big band sound and swing beat.

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 brought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let is snow, let it snow, let it snow
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/m/mcfly/let_it_snow.html ]
When we finally kiss goodnight
How I hate going out in the storm
But if you really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And my dear we're still goodbye-ing
As long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow


All the way home I'll be warm
All the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And my dear I'm still goodbye-ing
As long you love me so

Let it snow, Let it Snow, Let it snow
Let it snow, Let is snow, Let is snow

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow
