10 STRANGE KEY FACTS ABOUT CHRISTMAS YOU NEVER KNEW OF.

2.  “Silent Night” is the most recorded Christmas song in history according to Times, with over 733 different versions copyrighted since 1978. Legend has it that “Silent Night” was written by a Father Joseph Mohr in Austria, who was determined to have music at his Christmas service after his organ broke. In reality, a priest wrote it while stationed at a pilgrim church in Austria. Meanwhile, “White Christmas” is the best-selling song of all time. “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” actually has a truly depressing back-story: songwriter James “Haven” Gillespie was broke, jobless, and his brother had just died when he was asked to write a Christmas song. He was originally to overcome with grief, but eventually found inspiration in his brother’s death and the Christmas memories they had together.
