Would it even be the holidays without Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You"? Maybe, but it sure wouldn't feel like them.

The iconic singer showed her love for the winter season just as the clock struck midnight on Nov. 1 when she posted a video of her ... defrosting. Several Halloween icons used hairdryers to melt a giant block of ice, with Carey wearing a festive outfit trapped inside.

"It's tiiiiiiiiiime!" she shouted, shattering the ice cube with her high pitched voice before dancing and singing around several presents.

Last month, the legendary singer dropped the 13 dates for her holiday performances for her "Merry Christmas One and All!" tour across the United States and Canada.

"Yes, the actual defrosting has begun!" Carey wrote on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

Here’s where to catch the Queen of Christmas in real life and how to score tickets.
