Spooky szn is done and dusted, and Mariah szn is in full swing, as the woman herself has officially declared.
Mariah Carey just posted an iconic video on Twitter, in which she's wearing a sparkly red gown and matching heels and brandishing a candy cane-striped baseball bat. She walks into a room with a full Halloween display, including three pumpkins that read "it's," "not" and "time." Carey brandishes the bat as the opening notes to "All I Want to Christmas" begin to play, then gleefully smashes the "not" pumpkin.
Carey then sing-songs "it's time" and squeals as the vocals start and she finds herself in a room decorated to the nines with Christmassy items. The video then fades to black and reads, "It's time!!! To smash that pumpkin and treat it as pie... cause we still gotta get through Thanksgiving!!!"
The singer wrote, "Ready? Let’s go! #MariahSZN."

Posting on Halloween, one Twitter user pointed out that Carey's iconic Christmas track is already beginning an upward trend in terms of Google searches.

And Carey herself has been more than ready for days now. On Oct. 28, a fan reshared a notice that had appeared on a jukebox in a Dallas bar, which effectively banned "All I Want for Christmas" until Dec. 1, writing, "is this the war on Christmas I’ve heard about?"
