The video, shared on social media, shows a clock ticking from 11.59pm on October 31 to midnight on November 1.
As midnight strikes, a vault door opens to reveal Carey entombed in a block of ice as Halloween characters, including Ghostface from Scream and a person in a pumpkin mask, use hairdryers to defrost her.
As the ice begins to thaw, Carey sings “It’s time!”, prompting the ice to crack, and she emerges as her Christmas anthem plays.
Carey frolics in a skin-tight red Santa suit surrounded by Christmas trees and elves in festive jumpers, as well as her children, Moroccan and Monroe, 12.
She captioned the video: “It’s…… TIME!!! #MariahSZN.”
Carey has become increasingly synonymous with the Christmas season since the release of All I Want For Christmas Is You, which appeared on her first holiday album Merry Christmas in 1994.
Since then she has released a string of Christmas albums and this year will perform a number of Christmas shows in the US and Canada.
She also has a Christmas special on Apple TV+, Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special, which was released in 2020.
