“Jingle Bells Cha Cha Cha,” performed by Pearl Bailey in 1959, when the Latin dance craze was hot in the USA. “Thrush utilizes her usual sock showmanship on effective cha-cha version of the traditional yule theme,” said Billboard.

There’s a more recent instrumental version, featuring baritone sax and timbales, by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy:

Cha Cha around the Christmas tree, everbody!
