Bing Crosby Sings White Christmas for the First Time In December 1941

White Christmas treesIrving Berlin, the Russian Jewish songwriter, wrote “White Christmas”and  in 1941 Bing Crosby sang it on his weekly NBC radio program, The Kraft Music Hall.  A year later, Crosby’s  recording of the song became a #1 hit.

“White Christmas” was listed as the world’s best-selling single in the first-ever Guinness Book of Records (published in 1955) and—remarkably—still retains the title more than 50 years later.
