Baby, it’s cold outside

By Bill Sherry

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is a song with words and music by Frank Loesser and although it is popular during the Christmas season, it is a romantic winter song. According to Wikipedia, Loesser wrote the duet in 1944. He premiered the song with his wife, Lynn Garland, at their Navarro Hotel housewarming party toward the end of the evening, signifying to guests that it was nearly time to end the party and go home.

Yes, you are right it is cold outside, and undoubtedly for me, I find great comfort being safe and warm, sitting next to the fireplace, reading a good seed catalog and dreaming of spring between short naps. But, did you not know? Have you not heard? It’s winter and baby its cold outside! Maybe, we should take some time, settle into the long nights with loved ones and a cup of hot cocoa or some warm apple cider.
