Let It Snow!
“There is nothing in the world
more beautiful than the forestclothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy
- William Sharp
(pseudonym of Fiona MacLeod)
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's Newsletter theme seems to be a natural today, with so many places getting sooo much snow.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mN7LW0Y00kE - Let It Snow! - Dean Martin
|"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. Although the song's lyrics make no mention of Christmas, it is played on radio stations during the Christmas season and is often covered by various artists on Christmas-themed albums...|

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday must be spent to the glory of

Thanks so much, Daniel!
From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 12/28/17:
|Thank you, Joan!|
From Bob Sprouse ('66) of CO - 12/26/17:
’66 here. I’m going to put this info on the NNHS Facebook page but
thought I’d share it with you also.
I work as a photographer, and was putting together a coffee mug order for a high school football program and decided to order a mug for myself with this logo. Here’s the result...
I had it done at Sam’s Club for around 15 dollars. Anyone interested in doing the same (or using the logo for some other purpose) just needs to copy the image and take it to Sam’s of wherever they go to for photo processing.
WOWZERONI! Y'all can all have all sorts of fun with this!
I've left the logo in its original size for clarity, and for safekeeping, I'm adding this to TYPHOONMART:
Thank you, Bobby!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 12/26/17 - "Songs with meaning":
Hope you all enjoy these inspirational messages. I think it's great that love, harmony & oneness, instead of division, is beginning to show forth, despite some opposition toward political, religious or racial divide.https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=u9Dg-g7t2l4

Let It Snow!
Words by Sammy Cahn (18 June 1913 – 15 Jan 1993)
Music by Jule Styne (31 Dec 1905 - 20 Sept 1994), 1945
"The wonderful Christmas song Let It Snow was created by
lyricist Sammy Cahn and the composer Jule Styne in 1945.
The words and lyrics of Let It Snow reflect the feeling of warmth and security associated with Christmas and also brings in the more modern customs of popping corn!
The song Let It Snow was reprised in recent years when used in the Bruce Willis film Die Hard which started with the film's hero travelling to meet his family at Christmas."
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 bought some corn for popping,
The lights are turned way down low,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.
The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bying,
But as long as you love me so,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
