Which of these Christmas songs was written in summer?

The Christmas Song

The Little Drummer Boy

Jingle Bells

Last Christmas

“The Christmas Song,” which you might know as “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire,” was more about the writer’s imagination than his reality. Mel Tormé wrote the song during a summer heatwave in 1945 as a mind over matter trick. He hoped that by reminding himself of all these winter traditions, it might cool him off. It wasn’t the only Christmas song written in summer. A July heat wave also sparked “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson.
