At the time, the cover for many singles were generally very dull, however Mr Boyd appears to have done better than most with this cover which shows a Mommy (obvious by her semi-domestic apparel) kissing Santa Claus (obvious by his large stomach, red coat and white beard). And what's more there is a young boy, sat in the corner, clearly watching the scene unfold. This one wins an AllBum.Art thumbs up for managing to actually represent the song.

i saw mommy kissing santa claus 2Just because the original cover is alright, doesn't mean it can't be improved upon. In this modernized cover, the Mommy concerned is a little less domesticated and the Santa Claus somewhat less convincing. But where the picture loses out in authenticity, it gains in audacity as it seems that Mommy has dressed up specially for the occasion in red hot-pants and silver stripper heels. It's almost as if she knew Santa was on his way and had prepared herself ready for him coming. There is one alternative explanation, that the Mommy concerned is actually one of the presents that Santa is delivering as there must be many a Daddy who would like her in their Christmas stockings.
