It was a magical Hanukkah celebration at the household of Mariah Carey as she marked the beginning of the festivities with her children.
Carey is the parent to adorable ten-year-old twins Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon from her previous marriage to Nick Cannon.
The “All I Want For Christmas Is You” singer rang in the holiday by teaching her offspring a festive tune she learned as a child.

Fans swarmed the post with comments. Someone wrote, “imagine your mom being MARIAH CAREY, and she sings to you like this… on every holiday… A PERSON CAN DREAM.”
A Twitter user gushed, “Omg coming to snatch the title of Queen of Hanukkah…” while another typed, “THAT SOUNDED HEAVENLY MARIAH!!!”
Others were amused by the 10-year-olds’ apparent lack of interest in their mother’s mesmerizing singing. A fan noted, “They look at you as if they think, mom when ya stop.”
