Wait, WTF Is "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" Actually About?

Mommy is having an extramarital affair with Santa, right?!

Today I was browsing BuzzFeed, as is my wont, and I came across this:

Wait...WHAT? It never occurred to me either, probably because that's not implied in the lyrics at all:

View this video on YouTube

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night.
She didn't see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peek
She thought I was tucked
Up in my bedroom fast asleep.

Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white.
Oh, what a laugh it would have been,
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night!

I sent the Tumblr image to my co-workers and the reaction was swift and furious:

rachelwmiller [3:37 PM]:

terripous [3:38 PM]:

IS IT???

rachelwmiller [3:38 PM]:

alanna [3:38 PM]:

terripous [3:38 PM]

never thought it was anything other than a cheating song

rachelysanders [3:38 PM]:

emma.tyler [3:39 PM]:

rachelysanders [3:39 PM]:

rachelwmiller [3:39 PM]:

rachelysanders [3:39 PM]:


rachelwmiller [3:39 PM]:

alanna [3:39 PM]:

rachelwmiller [3:39 PM]:


rachelysanders [3:39 PM]:

i have amended my word choice

it was uncharitable

Note: Her statement now says, "The child is just mistaken."

alanna [3:41 PM]:

Well...IS it a sex thing?!?!
