The 2019 Netflix movie Let It Snow is an adaptation of the best-selling book by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle. The story follows three different groups of teenagers as a huge snowstorm rages its way in a Midwest town on Christmas Eve.

The movie is set in the fictional town of Laurel, Illinois, but Let It Snow was filmed in several villages in Ontario.
