Let’s talk about “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”.
The whole scenario has always seemed a bit…off, to me. I, of course, understand the twist. But, why is he in a Santa suit if the kids are in bed? Does he work as a department store Santa and just got home? Or did we pop into something a little too private? Hey, within the confines of marriage, whatever decks your halls I guess; but why do I have to hear about it?
And, when a wife starts to tickle her husband who happens to be dressed as Papai Noel, it’s past time to make a mental health appointment for two.
More than that, this scenario doesn’t reflect the Christmas Eve experience of any parents I know. Should be more like “I saw an exhausted mommy polish off half a bottle of Riesling while ‘Santa’ bloodied his frozen knuckles trying to assemble a trampoline.”
VERY Happy Holidays to you and your families, whatever holiday(s) you happen to be celebrating!
