A day after Halloween may seem too early for some to get into the festive spirit — unless you're Mariah Carey, dahhhling. When the Queen of Christmas declares that spooky season is over, that's our cue to put away the spooky decorations and deck the halls with boughs of holly. On Nov. 1 around midnight, Mariah posted a fun video both declaring "it's time" for Christmas season and teasing that something special is coming on 5 Nov.
Dressed in a sparkly red gown and matching heels and armed with a candy-cane-striped baseball bat, the Grammy-winning diva sneaks into a house, where she finds three pumpkins carved with the words "It's not time." Next? Mariah gleefully smashes the "not" pumpkin as her iconic Christmas hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You" starts playing. If you blink in between Mariah throwing fake snow everywhere and displaying Christmas ornaments, you'll miss the camera pan to a present labeled "11/5," as well as a disclaimer at the end: "To smash that pumpkin and treat it as pie…. Cause we still gotta get through Thanksgiving!!!" As for what's in store this Friday, we can only hope that it's a new Christmas tune, but whatever the surprise is, the countdown is on. Check out the festive clip above.
