Mariah Carey declares Halloween is officially over as she gets into Christmas spirit
Mariah Carey has officially defrosted.
The so-called “Queen of Christmas” rushed to social media the minute Halloween was over as she welcomed Nov. 1 with a fun seasonal post.
The 5-time Grammy winner, 52, shared a 30-second clip on her Twitter and Instagram accounts, in which she’s seen riding a Peloton bike while decked out in Halloween gear.
As the calendar flips to Nov. 1, Carey is instantly seen dressed in a festive outfit as the opening of her iconic Yuletide track “All I Want For Christmas Is You” plays in the background.
“It’s time,” she teases in the clip, officially marking the end of the spooky season and the unofficial start of the festive one.
The hit song has already found its way back into the US iTunes Top 100 charts just hours after midnight.
The singer is set to kickstart her festive “Merry Christmas to All” mini-tour next month, which consists of four shows in total taking place in New York and Toronto.
The extravaganza was initially planned to take place for two dates, however, the singer added a couple of more performances starting Dec. 9 in Toronto, where she will also perform on Dec. 11.

She’ll then make her way to NYC for two performances at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 13 and Dec. 16.
Carey and Christmas have become synonymous over the past 28 years, thanks to the release of her 1994 album “Merry Christmas,” which has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide.
The album features “All I Want For Christmas Is You” — perhaps the most famous holiday hit in modern history. The festive anthem hit the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 in both 2019 and 2020. In 2020, the song also broke Spotify’s record for most single day-plays, with the track streaming a staggering 17.223 million times in 24 hours.
“All I Want For Christmas Is You” has reportedly earned Carey more than $2 million in royalties on Spotify alone, according to a 2019 CNN report.
