“There’s snowplace like home”

"There’s snow place like home” is a winter saying that has been printed on many images. “There’s no place like home” is a famous line from the song “Home! Sweet Home!” (1823) by John Howard Payne (1791-1852).

“This is well for the city, where, during a storm, there’s snow place like home” was printed in The Daily Graphic (New York, NY) on January 25, 1876. Snow Place Like Home (1948) was the title of a Popeye cartoon. “Snowplace” is often used for “snow place.”


25 January 1876, The Daily Graphic (New York, NY), pg. 664, col. 2:
This is well for the city, where, during a storm, there’s snow place like home; but the country in the winter is a sad place without the chance for sleighing parties.
