When it first aired in December of 2020, ‘Christmas Morning’ was a crack up and easily one of the best Saturday Night Live Christmas skits we’ve seen in recent years.
The skit stars Kristen Wiig, Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney, and Chloe Fineman.
It also hit rather close to home for many people. As Really Now commented on YouTube, “That was not an SNL skit, that was a documentary of what happens to millions of moms on Christmas Day.”
Moms apparently reacted last year by posting photos to Twitter of themselves in a robe. And a year later it was clear they hadn’t forgotten.
There’s a funny/sad SNL skit called “and I got a robe” that describes my Christmas experience since child bearing and I watch it while I wrap my presents to me. https://t.co/5qlfW58QSS

I’ve already seen the box arrive and my present is the coffee maker my husband wants. Instead of being mad, the kids and I are making an SNL skit like “I got a robe.” to ruthlessly mock him!! Needless to say, the kids turned out awesome!!

Watch and laugh…but don’t forget to thank your mother (and/or your caretakers, friends, and family) for all the work they put into holiday dinners, parties, and events.
And a huge Happy Holidays from the Colorado Sound to all the moms out there!
