Mommy, Kissing Santa Claus, and etc.

Okay.  One question:

That Christmas song, “I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”?

Would somebody maybe parse through the lyrics and find the answer to the question, “Who is Mommy kissing?”

Is she kissing Daddy?  OR a man she is cheating on with daddy?

Hearing Christmas songs, and the sort of unrelenting melancholy and depression and dysfunction that are the twentieth century standards (“I’ll be home for Christmas, and etc…. If only in my Dreams“), I automatically suspect the worst.  Mommy is having an affair, and has a thing for red stockings.  Mommy and Daddy are planning a divorce.  They will break the news to the singer of this song as he’s distracted by all the toys he’s opened.
