There’s a few things that signal that Christmas is on its way – mince pies in the shops again, your nan prepping the pudding, Strictly Come Dancing being on the telly.

But the most important of all of these is Mariah Carey coming out of hibernation.

It is November 1 so, like clockwork, Mariah has declared spooky season over and Mariah season here once more. 

The 51-year-old smashed up pumpkins in a video to mark the beginning of the festive season, and used a candy cane as her weapon of choice.

After battering the pumpkins which were carved to read ‘It’s not time’, we heard the opening jingle to her hit All I Want For Christmas Is You, before Mariah said: ‘It’s time.’

The singer then morphed into full Christmas mode, throwing snow in the air and wearing a sparkly Santa suit. 


She added a disclaimer at the end reading: ‘It’s Time! To smash that pumpkin and treat it as pie… cause we still gotta get through Thanksgiving!!!’

The video also teased some form of announcement from Mariah, as a card read: ’11/5.’

Fans asked what Mariah was planning for November 5, with the star teasing: ‘Come back tomorrow, same time and I’ll tell you.’

Always early with the gifts, this one.

Mariah dropped her iconic Christmas song All I Want For Christmas Is You back in 1994, and since then it has become a festive standard and one of the best-selling singles of all time.

Despite its success, it never actually hit number one in the US or the UK, but finally reached the top spot in the States in 2019, 25 years after its release. 

It made it to number one in the UK last year, having been kept off the top spot 26 years earlier by East 17’s Stay Another Day. 

The song’s success, plus Mariah’s admirable commitment to Christmas cheer and the colour red, have seen her crowned the Queen of Christmas, so we can expect plenty of festive treats from her over the next seven weeks.

Now, has anyone woken up Michael Buble?
