Breaking News: The Queen Of Christmas Has Officially Declared It The Holiday Season
The Easter bunny and the Groundhog have their place in wrangling in their respective seasons and so does Mariah Carey. The Queen of Christmas has officially cut the tape and welcomed in the Christmas season. Cue the jingle bells, falling snowflakes, and the songbird supreme’s breathy Christmas soundtracks we all hold dear.

In a hilarious post to her Instagram page, Carey shared a series of video clips of her proclaim that it was “not yet” Christmas.
After a fun Halloween night with friends, the chanteuse shared a hilarious video declaring “breaking news” that the holiday season was officially here.
In a short clip shared to her Instagram Carey was dressed in her ’80s rocker- themed Halloween suit (paired with a fantastic wig) and fell asleep in her bed at 11:59 p.m. The video showed the clock officially striking midnight and the date changing to November 1st just as Carey’s iconic holiday single, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” played out. Carey wakes up in the video wearing Christmas pajamas and to a phone call from Santa Claus. It isn’t until Santa greets her with a Ho Ho Ho that Carey proclaims “it’s time!”
It might just be the start of November, but Carey (the official Reina de Christmas) has spoken and fans are already the holiday spirit.

Carey also shared to her Instagram on early Monday that she has been featured in Cosmo UK’s December Issue with the theme Sleigh Girl Sleigh. In her profile with the UK magazine, Carey revealed how she wrote “All I Want For Christmas Is You”: “”I just sat down, decorated a little tree and put on It’s A Wonderful Life and tried to get into that mood. Then I sat in this small room with a keyboard and started doing little melodies and stuff. I was going over all the things I think about at Christmas time that make me happy and how to turn it around and make it into a love song.” It also details just how the singer celebrates Christmas in her own home. These moments include “getting into a zen Christmas Zone: “I will only allow a harmonious day in my house – you have to comply or you can get out. That’s how you avoid the arguments. You’re not invited if you’re going to cause any drama. There are no fights on Christmas.” and booking a flight to Aspen “
“Christmas officially starts on the 23rd with my extended family. We’re not together, but Nick [Cannon, Mariah’s ex-husband and father to her twins] will usually come by. And usually we’re in Aspen. When I get off the plane, our drivers have All I Want For Christmas… playing, we have hot cocoa and some butterscotch schnapps. Then we’ll go through the woods on a two- horse open sleigh with blankets and real reindeer. It’s freezing cold but it’s beautiful and you’re looking at the stars. It’s an incredible moment I love every year.” Carey admits that she also has two Christmas trees, which includes on in her bedroom and plays party games with her kids.
The takeaways? Mariah Carey has a Christmas celebration that not even your Madre can compete with and Christmas is officially OFFICIALLY here!
