Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! - Dean Martin (1959)

Dean Martin released a version of this 1945 classic in 1959, as part of his album 'A Winter Romance', and a re-recorded version in 1966, as part of 'The Dean Martin Christmas Album'.

The song entered the Billboard Hot 10 for the first time in 2018.

Despite the lyrics making no mention of any holiday, the song has come to be regarded as a  worldwide due to its winter theme, being played on radio stations during the Christmas and holiday season, and having often been covered by various artists on Christmas-themed albums.

Deano's version peaked at #21 on the Australian charts.


 

12 hours Boxing Day walk needed to burn off Christmas dinner calories

The average person would need to go for a 12-hour walk on Boxing Day to burn off the calories from Christmas dinner.

Research has found that a hike of 80 kms is needed to burn off the gut-busting 3,475 calories contributed to by turkey and all the trimmings.

Alternatively, people watching their waistlines over the festive period could also set off on a six-hour jog - according to Amanda Daley, professor of behavioural medicine at Loughborough University.

Those who refuse to go on even a short stroll after their Christmas Day meal could gain up to 1kg in weight.

Professor Daley, who calculated the calories for The Conversation website, said: "It is important that people understand the true energy cost of food to encourage some restraint in their eating, and perhaps make them think twice about something like the yule log - or reduce the size of the piece they cut."

Start loosening that belt buckle!
