I heard these songs every Christmas growing up so even though they’re not technically Christmas songs, they’re part of my Christmas nostalgia. You know, back in the day, when someone else put up the tree and the lights, did the baking, did the cleaning, did the shopping… and all I had to do was receive and rejoice. Kind of like the very first Christmas, actually.
First up is Suzy Snowflake. I’ve got two versions for you, one which is a video made by a Chicago TV station back in 1953. Music videos are older than me? Who knew?
The second is the more familiar version, at least to me, as sung by Rosemary Clooney.
And here’s another snowflake song, a romantic piece by Jim Reeves, Hey, Hey, Hey, Snowflake.
