From Wikipedia:

"Elvis' Christmas Album is the fourth studio album by Elvis Presley on RCA Victor Records, LOC 1035, a deluxe limited edition, released in October 1957, and recorded at Radio Recorders in Hollywood. It has been reissued in numerous different formats since its first release. It spent four weeks at number one on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, and was the first of two Christmas-themed albums Presley would record, the other being Elvis Sings the Wonderful World of Christmas, released in 1971.

According to the latest certifications by the Recording Industry Association of America, Elvis' Christmas Album has shipped at least 13,000,000 copies in the United States (3,000,000 of the original 1957 release on RCA Records, plus 10,000,000 copies of a "budget" edition first released by RCA Camden in 1970 and then by Pickwick Records in 1975).[2] It is the first Presley title to attain Diamond certification by the RIAA, and is also the best-selling Christmas/holiday album of all time in the United States.[3]"
