8 Surprising Facts About 'Let It Snow'

All it takes is hearing the piccolo at the beginning of Dean Martin’s “Let It Snow” to make some people crave the cold. No matter how you feel about the holidays, the honorary Christmas song celebrates a part of the season everyone can get on board with—namely, getting cozy indoors when the weather outside is frightful. Here are some festive facts you should know about the ultimate hygge anthem.
5. IT TOOK 50 YEARS FOR DEAN MARTIN'S VERSION OF "LET IT SNOW" TO ENTER THE BILLBOARD CHARTS.
After playing on radio stations through decades worth of Christmases, Dean Martin's cover of "Let It Snow" finally entered the Billboard Top 100 in 2018. It marked the first time in 49 years a Dean Martin track made the list, the last time being when "I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am" charted in 1969. Martin was just eight years shy of beating Louis Prima's record for longest gap between Hot 100 hits, which lasted 57 years.
6. THE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR "LET IT SNOW" WAS ONLY RELEASED IN 2019.
After charting for the first time in 2018, Dean Martin's "Let It Snow" reached another important milestone in 2019: An official music video for the song was uploaded to YouTube in November. It features an animated version of the singer celebrating the holidays with a cartoon cast of characters. The video was produced by Universal Music Enterprises, which has also released animated videos for classic holiday songs like "Jingle Bells" and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree."
