Default Christmas Tidbit


It appears that my Christmas Tidbit will have to be a bit more a challenge to get past our experts. Let's see if this will stump them:
What is the second-best selling Christmas song, and who sung it for the first time in what year???

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer came to life in 1939 when the Chicago-based Montgomery Ward company (operators of a chain of department stores) asked one of their copywriters, 34-year-old Robert L. May, to come up with a Christmas story they could give away to shoppers as a promotional gimmick. May’s brother-in-law Johnny Marks, developed the lyrics and melody for a Rudolph song. Marks' musical version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" (turned down by many who didn't want to meddle with the established Santa legend) was recorded by Gene Autry in 1949, sold two million copies that year, and went on to become one of the best-selling songs of all time (second only to "White Christmas").
