Christmas morning is supposed to be a magical time when everyone gets to dig through their mountains of gifts and share in their holiday spirit — except for the parents, of course. In a Christmas sketch that is both hilarious and tragically realistic, Saturday Night Live host Kristen Wiig showed just how magical Christmas morning can be for everyone but Mom.
As her character's family wake up on Christmas Day, they happily reveal their holiday bounty through song. Her son, played by Kyle Mooney, gets a Nerf gun, Hulk hands, a telescope, and a drum set. Her daughter, played by Chloe Fineman, gets a hat, a phone, a copy of The Catcher in the Rye, and a globe. And while her husband, played by Beck Bennett, receives a signed baseball bat, a tie, and a laptop, Kristen gets a robe. Yep, that's right — Mom gets a robe that was 40 percent off!
As the kids and her husband continue listing their insane amount of presents (the kids even get the piano from Big!), their mom makes their breakfast, burning her hand and noting that she didn't even scream because "I keep the pain inside of me." She doesn't even get anything in her stocking! But you know who gets a big surprise in the end? The dog! And of course, after she's made them breakfast, watched them open all their presents — while wearing her brand-new discounted robe — they all take a picture that she looks a wreck in.
Whew, it's a little too real! If you needed a reminder to send a message to your mom this week, Saturday Night Live just gave us all a necessary kick in the pants. Maybe spring for some wine to go along with Mom's gifts this year?
