Christmas Queen Mariah Carey is getting into the spirit of her favorite holiday!

The singer is currently in New York for her fourth annual Hallmark Channel Presents All I Want For Christmas Is You Concert Tour at the Beacon Theatre, but it’s not just her festive shows that have her feeling the Christmas fun.

Carey and her 6-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, spent their free time in the city in search of the perfect Christmas tree. The star posted all about the holiday adventure on her Instagram, even showing off her jolly red jacket that suited the occasion impeccably.

While the family ended up having no trouble finding a tree that worked for them, that doesn’t mean the mission ended there. A Christmas tree is nothing without its decorations, and Carey wasn’t about to let a shrub stay undecorated in her home.

Once Carey brought the tree back to her New York home, the tree-trimming began.

“We’re decorating the tree,” Carey explained in an Instagram video on Sunday night. “It’s very exciting because usually we wait until we get to Aspen and then we just absorb the moments and maybe decorate the tree, but this is December 2nd, I think, oh, 3rd, and this is festive.”

With the tree being decorated while football is playing on the large projector beside it, Carey is showing that she knows how to do the holiday season right. Not that anyone would ever think otherwise.

Eventually, all the ornaments were placed beautifully on the new tree and the lights were put on, as well as a star as the tree topper. With a helping hand, Carey posed for a photo near the tree as she reached out towards the star at the very top. With an incredibly festive tree now in her home, it’s no wonder she has such a big smile in the photo.

She’ll be keeping the Christmas fun going on Monday and Tuesday night when she returns to the Beacon Theatre stage for her concerts. After both shows, she’ll be moving the tour to other areas of the world, including Paris, Manchester, London and Las Vegas.
