With 50 million copies sold, not only is Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" the best-selling Christmas song of all time, it's also the best-selling single ever, according to Guinness World Records. It first aired during the Kraft Music Hall radio show yes, sponsored by the food company on December 25, Then-host, Bing Crosby, crooned the carol, which is soulful, longing, and sad anyway, but especially so at the time. Pearl Harbor had been attacked just a few weeks before. It turns out, the song has a sad back story too. It was written by Irving Berlin the same composer behind "Cheek to Cheek," "God Bless America," and many more classics , a Russian-born immigrant who, interestingly enough, did not celebrate Christmas, as he was Jewish. He wrote "White Christmas" for a musical that eventually morphed into the movie Holiday Inn and ended up winning an Academy Award for the song. Crosby's rendition quickly became an American favorite, even though the original radio recording was lost and the version, which is said to have only taken 18 minutes , was worn out, according to Seattle's KUOW. It was constantly requested by troops during Bing's USO appearances overseas, which gave the singer some mixed feelings.
