Mariah Carey Embraces Jokes About "Defrosting" In Her Annual "It's Time" Video

Mariah Carey

Almost immediately after Halloween ends, Carey takes to social media to declare "It's Time!" November 1 marks the beginning of "Mariah SZN" and fans are here for it!

This year's video fully embraces the jokes fans have about the diva "defrosting" leading up to November 1. Simply captioned, "It’s…… TIME!!! 🎃🧊🎄 #MariahSZN," viewers see Carey in her holiday outfit in a block of ice with Halloween characters using hairdryers to help the queen of the holidays kick off her favorite season. Just as the ice begins to melt, she belts out her famous, "IT'S TIMEEEEE!" in only a way Carey can.

Once freed from the block of ice, the holiday celebration begins with her twins, Monroe and Moroccan, 12, joining in on the holiday fun.

The video was shared on Carey's social media pages and in just a few hours, has more than 17 million views on TikTok and nearly 600,000 on Instagram.

"The way she acknowledges the defrosting memes, ack, living for this, queen," one person wrote on TikTok. Another added, "I was literally waiting for this video before I could go to sleep."

Over on Instagram, the thoughts were the same.

"November 1st should be a public holiday at this point in honour of Mariah's annual announcement," one person wrote.

"Stayed up to midnight just for this," wrote another.

Last year to celebrate the occasion, Carey shared a video dressed as a Halloween witch riding a Peloton with spooky-themed music playing as she cackles. As the calendar switches from October 31 to November 1, she suddenly transforms into her Christmas persona with "All I Want For Christmas Is You" playing in the background. She, of course, belts out her iconic, "It's Time!"
