Some will say that you can’t start celebrating Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but in my opinion once Hallmark starts Countdown to Christmas, it’s the kick off. The second kick off point? Well, that would be the day that Mariah Carey posts.
Yes, you read that right. I said Mariah. All I Want For Christmas Is You is the song that really marks the start of the Christmas season for me. I wait and wait for Mariah to take to her Instagram. Look, the woman knows that the whole world is waiting for her to do her yearly announcement.
This years video has Mariah in a long red dress ready to go in a house, but there are three pumpkins outside that read, “It’s Not Time,” and trying to stop her holiday cheer.
Leave it to Mariah to swing a bat and destroy the one that says “not” because no one tells Ms. Carey what to do.
Mariah has a flash to a package that says “11/5” on it and then the video ends with the message, “It’s Time!!! To smash that pumpkin and treat it as pie… cause we still gotta get through Thanksgiving!!!”
Looks like we’re getting a treat. And I have to admit, we are thrilled.
Time to dust off All I Want For Christmas Is You, because for me the season has begun.
