Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
It seems everybody has their own rituals, tricks, and tips for making it snow.

None of these are scientific, but here are 7 time-honored tricks, tips, legends that just might help make it snow!
#1 – Place A Spoon Under The Pillow
Placing a spoon under the pillow is one of the most popular tricks to make it snow.
While the verdict is still out as to if this old trick really helps, if you really want snow it never hurts to try, right?
There’s no apparent type of spoon that has to be used.
You’ll find that people use all types of spoons for this snow-making trick:
- Plastic spoons
- Metal spoons
- Wood spoons
#2 – Wear Your Pajamas Inside-Out
When you go to bed tonight, make sure you wear your pajamas inside-out.

#4 – Leave Ice Cubes On The Porch
They say that placing some ice cubes on the porch helps to make it snow.
There’s no apparent rule on how many ice cubes you’re supposed to leave out on the porch to make it snow… Maybe the more ice cubes you put out on the porch the more snow you’ll get? Try it and see.
#5 – Place A White Crayon In Your Freezer
Stick a white crayon in your freezer and then place it under your pillow before going to bed to help make it snow. This makes sense — white, after all, is the color of snow (at least the good snow, right?).
#6 – Run Around Your Table 5 Times
They say that running around your table 5 times will help make it snow. If your table is against a wall you should drag it out to the center of the room so you can get around your table a little more easily. Oh, and don’t trip!
#7 – Flush An Ice Cube Down Your Toilet
This tip sounds a little strange, but it’s an old one that supposedly has worked in the past for some. Flush a single ice cube down your toilet and then wait… This is actually one of the most common tricks you’ll find for making it snow.
