I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

December 20, 1952: Jimmy Boyd’s I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus hits #1!


Whenever I heard I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus I always wondered was this Wayne Newton or a girl or a boy or a guy pretending to be a kid?  Turns out Jimmy Boyd was 13 when he sang this. Pretty impressive phrasing for a kid!

I have one more Christmas gig this Saturday for Ann Ruckert, and then I’ll play a few Christmas carols for the family on Christmas eve and then I will be closing the Christmas songbook until next year. Well maybe a Silent Night on New Year’s Eve but that’s it!

Ok, it’s late.  Daddy’s gonna put on a Santa hat and see what Mommy does…

more tomorrow!
