"Let it Snow!" remains a popular Christmas phrase, and not only due to the often-heard song that pops up this time of year.
In the U.S., at least in many areas, it just wouldn't be Christmas without snow. Hence another favorite song, "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas."
And while many retirees flee to warmer climates, they often return to snow ridden areas to celebrate with family. The grand children love snow almost as much as Christmas itself!
And while they go sledding less often as time goes by, they still enjoy a good snow storm. Not to mention the prospect of a good old-fashioned snow day!
Our Let it Snow ornament is one of several patterns for the holiday that you can stitch quickly. Even beginners will appreciate how soon they can have a finished ornament, ready for giving or display.
They make wonderful gifts for...
