As we seek signs of the holiday season in early November, Mariah Carey—the Queen of Christmas—sets the celebratory tone by sharing her first “All I Want For Christmas Is You” TikTok as the clock strikes midnight on Nov. 1.

Lapse, a photo-sharing app with a cinematic touch, might just be the understated platform you’ve been seeking.

Moments after the Halloween festivities wrap up, Mariah Carey’s festive presence lights up our social media.

In the delightful video, Carey is seen encased in ice, surrounded by quirky characters attempting to free her with blow dryers. Unexpectedly, it’s not the heat but her enchanting voice that sets her free. As Carey croons, “It’s tiiiiiime,” the ice shatters, and she emerges in a Santa-inspired spandex jumpsuit. Naturally, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” fills the air, snowflakes fall, gifts appear, and the spooky scene transforms into a joyful one with cheerful children.

The TikTok rapidly attracts over 37.9 million views and 8.3 million likes within 12 hours, prompting a wave of humor and festivity across platforms like Twitter. One user amusingly shares, “Mariah Carey on November 1st,” accompanied by a meme of RuPaul saying, “I don’t want to see any Halloween costumes.” Another posts an image of a cartoon figure holding cash with the caption, “Mariah Carey from November 1st to January 1st.”

It’s officially Mariah Carey season! 🎄
