To help you prepare for two weeks of fun and games, here are 10 tracks inspired by winter.
Cold as Ice
Appearing on the band's eponymous 1977 debut album, this track was initially the B-side for some versions of the single 'Feels Like the First Time'. The song was later sampled by Scott Brown and MOP.
Released in late 1976, this track is taken from Summer's album Four Seasons of Love. The song represents the winter phase of her concept album and peaked at 27 in the UK charts.
Snow (Hey Oh)
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Taken from their album Stadium Arcadium, singer Anthony Kiedis said the track's about "surviving, starting fresh. I've made a mess of everything, but I have a blank slate - a canvas of snow - and I get to start over."
Baby It's Cold Outside
This track was written by Frank Loesser and premiered at a housewarming party with his wife Lynn Garland in 1944. Garland considered the song theirs and was furious when Loesser sold it to MGM.
This track was released by British folk-rock singer songwriter Passenger, aka Michael David Rosenberg. He supported Ed Sheeran during his 2012 tour and performed the track live with him.
Ice Ice Baby
Written by Vanilla Ice and DJ Earthquake, this track samples the bassline from Queen & David Bowie's Under Pressure. It was initially released as a b-side to the rapper's cover of Play that Funky Music.
Skiing in the Snow
This 1960s track is a northern soul classic. It was also covered by Wigan's Ovation in 1975.
Trains and Winter Rains
Taken from her album And Winter Came..., this track features Agnus Dei, a Christian verse commonly heard in churches. The video for the song shows a boy's journey home on a London train.
Although this track is about a personal relationship, Matt Bellamy uses a variety of metaphors related to the second law of thermodynamics in it. He said: "The song is about cooling down, fighting for love, all that sort of stuff."
Mumford and Sons
Taken from the band's debut album Sigh No More, this track reached number 44 in the UK charts. It was written by Winston Marshall and Marcus Mumford says it's his favourite song to sing live.
