A character of the novel I'm reading gets tipsy. His gesture, or rather his posture, seems quite odd. The question is: can't there be some allusion in this description. I am told that there can be some hint to some Christmas song :confused:
Here is the text:

Nigel laid a finger against the side of his nose, squinting at her in an attempt to look wise.
"Nigel, you're under the hatchers already, and it's not yet noon."

Thank you in advance for your help
