You know the drill.

Once November 1st hits, the Corpse Bride makeup tutorials on TikTok are out, the lip syncs to All I Want For Christmas are in. And no one knows this better than the queen of Chrimbo herself, Mariah Carey. As we know she's been busy enough this year creating Black Irish, a cream based liqueur inspired by her Irish roots (which we'll all be buying for our grannies this Christmas). Despite this, she still found the time to officially mark the transition from spooky to silly season. She's dedicated that way.

Here we can see the queen of Christmas dressed in red glitter ceremoniously smashing pumpkins (giving the band name a whole new literal meaning) with a candy cane coloured baseball bat. A spectacular sight for anyone who starts celebrating Christmas 7 weeks before the day itself to behold. Are you team Mariah, ready to embrace all things Christmassy and belt out Fairytale of New York on the Coppers dance floor? Or are you still chowing down on trick or treat sweets and already planning your costume for Halloween 2022? Either way, you've got to appreciate Mariah's dedication to the brand. She's nothing if not consistent.
