Frosty the Snowman

Happy Monday!! May you have a special and magical day!!

Jinger wants to tell you about Frosty the Snowman!! Joey and Jinger love Frosty! Did you know that Frosty the Snowman has been around since 1950? Yep, Frosty the Snowman was a song first. The song was written by Walter Rollins and Steve Nelson. Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys was the first to sing it. On Sunday December 7, 1969, the Frosty the Snowman that we know and have grown to love came to life on an animated tv special.  Frosty the Snowman has made an appearance on Television every year since it was first released in 1969 during the Holiday/Christmas season.
