On December 13th, 2018, Redditor [3] Emiya_desu explained the meme:

It's a meme from the video game Fate/Extra. At one point in the game, a main character, Nero Claudius, goes around singing her own modified version of Jingle Bells which ends in the words Padoru Padoru. Padoru Padoru is a japanese onomatopoeia for the clopping noise of reindeer hooves.
