"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 1945. It was written in July 1945 in Hollywood, California during one of the hottest days on record.

First recorded by Vaughn Monroe, it became a popular hit, reaching number one on the Billboard music chart the following year.
