“White Christmas,” written by Irving Berlin and originally recorded by Bing Crosby, is not only a popular Christmas song – it the best-selling single of all time, according to the Guinness World Records. It has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide since it was originally released. Bing Crosby first performed the song on his radio show on Christmas Day in 1941. He later recorded the song with the John Scott Trotter Orchestra and the Ken Darby Singers in May 1942, and it was released on July 30 as part of an album of six 78-rpm songs from the film “Holiday Inn.” Since that time, it has been recorded by dozens of artists. Here are the words so you can sing along.

White Christmas Lyrics
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow.

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.
