Day 17 – Christmas music in the 1950s might have been about Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and the vocal groups, and singin’ dames like Brenda Lee, Julie London and Peggy Lee.  But it was also about novelty crap like “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” which was a monster hit in 1952 for a funny-looking kid named Jimmy Boyd.  We’re not gonna play that one here – instead we have the lesser-known followup where he caught his horny mom doing the mambo with Santa in 1954.   Another kid, presumably Spanish, offered “Donde Esta Santa Claus? (Where Is Santa Claus?)” in 1953 and it’s way more entertaining than you-know-what by that other kid.
