Kristen Wiig Is the Ultimate Mom on Christmas Morning in This SNL Sketch

Don’t forget about mom this holiday season. Saturday Night Live host Kristen Wiig highlighted what Christmas morning really looks like for some moms. In the sketch, Wiig gets woken up early by her kids, played by Kyle Mooney and Chloe Fineman. 

As the family opens gifts on Christmas morning, they excitedly reveal their presents to a catchy tune. Mooney gets a Nerf gun, Hulk hands, a drum set and a telescope. Fineman gets a hat, a phone and a copy of Catcher in the Rye. Her husband played by Beck Bennett gets a signed baseball bat, a laptop and a tie. Wiig gets a robe.

The song continues with the family listing off more and more presents including the piano from Big. Wiig thanks her family (rather unconvincingly) for the robe which she notices was on sale. 

While making breakfast, Wiig emerges from the kitchen with a dishrag over her hand letting her family know she burnt her hand. “It hurt pretty bad but I didn’t even scream because I keep the pain inside of me,” she raps.

Just as it appears there are more presents under the tree the kids and dad announce, “It’s presents for the dog!” The dog opens all of his gifts which include a bone, treats and even his own robe. 

After opening all of the gifts the family sits on the couch for a holiday selfie, in which Wiig looks like a wreck because she’s been up all night making Christmas magical for her family. 

As the sketch ends, an exhausted Wiig is sitting alone on the couch holding a glass of red wine.

“Your mom does everything for your family,” says a voice-over. “This year get her more than one present. Moms like stuff, too.”
