Music of the Season | Day 10

One of my favorites as a kid...  conjured up all kinds of images in my head!  Our first indication or hint at the reality?

Recorded by Jimmy Boyd at 13 years of age, the song "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" for Columbia Records became a hit, selling over two and a half million records in its first week's release and Boyd's name became known internationally. Columbia Records executives were baffled at the song's popularity. Boyd's record went to number one on the charts again the following year at Christmas, and continues to sell as a Christmas song. It has reportedly sold more than sixty million copies since its initial release.
