By | Dec 2, 2011

The song White Christmas sung by Bing Crosby is the biggest selling song of all-time with over 100 million copies sold.

The Song was written by Irving Berlin, a Jewish immigrant who also wrote God Bless America. It was first sung by Crosby in the 1942 movie Holiday Inn.

It was released each Christmas for many years.

In 1942 it was number 1 on the music charts and reached number 1 again in 1944 and 1945, becoming the only recording to reach number one in three different years.

Holiday Inn was remade in 1954 as White Christmas.

White Christmas is the most recorded Christmas song with over 500 versions by over 150 different artists.
