    For the most Christmas Albums sold, I would have to go with the Collectibles, The Ultimate Christmas Volumes 1 through 7.

    This album is marketed across the United States under popular regional Radio Station Call Letters.

    On the east coast, it's called The WCBS FM Ultimate Christmas Album.
    This collection of both traditional and rock'n'roll Christmas music is a treasury that will foot the bill for any corporate Christmas part all be itself!

    It is a great seller, both in record shops and on-line, and is usually hard to find.

    This year they added Volume #7

    The series started in 1998.

    Problem is, he specified albums as plural -- so that means all Christmas albums by an artist put together...

    Which Artist/Band is the all time best seller (Sold the most) of Christmas albums?

    Sorry i misinterpreted the question..

    My answer would have to be Alvin & The Chipmunks

    but Wikipedia says...
    The best-selling Christmas album of all time (per January 2008), is Elvis' Christmas Album, by Elvis Presley, with nine million sold in 50 years

    I'd hazard a guess that it's Elmo & Patsy of Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer fame.

    This novelty song has been included on many Christmas song collections for many years. Buyers may not be purchasing the collections for the song but every sale is still a sale of the song.
