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: / Via

It says: "until last year i genuinely thought i saw mommy kissing santa claus was actually about the mother cheating on her husband with santa, like it never occurred to me that her husband was dressed up as santa."

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:

terripous [3:38 PM]:

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?!?!
