It's been decades since Paul Anka recorded any holiday songs, so his newest, Songs of December, is a welcome listen, with Anka singing Christmas classics like "Let It Snow," "Blue Christmas," "Silver Bells," "White Christmas," and others to a full orchestra backing recorded at Capitol Records studios.
