What does these "for"s mean?


I suppose it all started with the snow. You see, it's a very special kind of snow. A snow to make the happy happier and the giddy even giddier. A snow to make a homecoming homier and natural enemies friends, naturally. For it was the first snow of the season. And as any child can tell you, there's a certain magic to the very first snow... especially when it falls on the day before Christmas. For when the first snow is also a Christmas snow, well, something wonderful is bound to happen!

Have you heard the acronym FANBOYS? These are the first letters of the English coordinating conjunctions.

They are For, And, Nor, But, Or and Yet.
You sentences are examples of "for" as a conjunction.

We sometimes use for as a conjunction meaning ‘because’. We use it in very formal, and often literary, contexts. I see it quite often in scriptures.
