I love Christmas music. It puts me into excellent spirits and makes me feel like a kid again. With one exception- one major exception. I HATE the song “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”. When I say “hate”, I mean that when I imagine hell this is the song playing in the background.
I know a lot of people who think this song is “cute”. Oh really? Cute? You think it’s cute that a little kid catches his Mother kissing what he believes to be Santa Claus i.e. not his Father and isn’t upset about it? You think adultery is “cute”? I mean, had that happened to me when I was a kid I would never ever have forgiven my Mother for kissing someone other than my Father. From that day forward, I would have referred to her by her first name and when the Ludacris song “Ho” came on, I would point to my Mother. Seriously. I’m very bothered that this kid isn’t bothered that his Mom is totally cheating on his Dad. Sure, we the audience, know that she probably isn’t cheating on his Dad, but the kid doesn’t know that and he’s not even a little fussed. C’mon kid. How warped are you that you think adultery is funny? “What a laugh it would have been if Daddy had only seen Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.” REALLY? Because, let me tell you kiddo, it would not have been a laugh. It would have been messy and ugly and heart-breaking. Also, someone probably would have killed someone else and then because you witnessed the whole thing you would have become terribly desensitized to violence and then become a serial killer a la Dexter. Is that something to laugh at kid? I don’t think so.
I give this song two bah humbugs and a grinch.
What are your most hated holiday songs???
