The Queen of Christmas has officially declared that “it’s time” for the holiday season, and she’s now celebrating with some new merch.
Mariah Carey took to social media on Thursday (Nov. 2) to share a photo of her 12-year-old twins, daughter Monroe and son Moroccan, whom she affectionately calls “dem babies,” posing in Carey’s new t-shirts. The white shirts feature a photo of the “All I Want for Christmas Is You” singer in a festive outfit, with “It’s Time!” written across the top.
The shirt is now available to purchase for $35 on Amazon here.

At the stroke of midnight on Nov. 1, Carey bid farewell to spooky season and hello to the holidays with an annual seasonal kick-off video. The singer posted an elaborate 35-second video of a frozen vault with a red countdown clock above it that reads “November 1 12:00.” The vault opens to reveal a number of Carey’s assistants dressed in a variety of scary masks using hair dryers to help Mariah escape defrost from the block of ice.
Carey ultimately cracks open the ice by belting out “It’s time!” in her signature whistle note and emerges from the frost in a red and white Santa-style costume. Monroe and Moroccan also joined in on the video’s festivities and dance around with their mother as Carey’s iconic holiday hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” officially blasts out for the first time this season.
Carey is slated to hit the road for her 13-date Merry Christmas One and All! tour on Nov. 15 in Highland, CA and ride her sleigh across North American until a Dec. 17 gig at Madison Square Garden in New York.
