We all know this. It's been rough. So when I saw that Mariah Carey was releasing a "Magical Christmas Special", I knew my grinch heart was about to grow. Its Holiday Seasuuuun 🦃🎅🏿🍂🎄 @ChinkyIdChelz Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas special is on Apple TV. Lemme get my snacks ready 11:33 PM - 04 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Did she have to grace us with this masterpiece? Definitely not. Can I die happy now? Yes, absolutely. So let's dive into the creation of the butterfly queen. It starts off with Tiffany Haddish as the narrator reading a huge book in a super cozy-looking space. Like, I want to live there. Apple TV+ The whole premise is basically that we're all lacking cheer because of the crappy year we've had and Santa is sending Mariah Carey to bring us joy. A solid plot. Chris Parker @crobker Only every holding my phone like Mariah Carey in her Christmas special from now on 08:12 AM - 06 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Before you know it she's in the air on a sleigh singing Sleigh Ride. She was like "brb gonna go save the world with my angelic voice". And can we talk about her outfit? SLEIGH girl. SLEIGH. Apple TV+ Honestly, all of her outfits in this special are ~stunning~. Did we expect anything less? Apple TV+ Oh, oh. And just in case she wasn't enough.. we get a lovely little visit from the Charlie Brown fam. Yes, even Snoopy and Woodstock.

Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Apple TV+ We did NOT deserve this collab between my queens Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, and Mariah Carey. Apple TV+ My ears have been blessed with the angelic sounds of the powerhouse goddesses. I cannot. View this video on YouTube UMPG / Apple TV+ / youtube.com Uh hi. A whistle note harmony between my two gals? Yes, please. Thanks. Apple TV+ Not to mention that the song is a BOP. I would love to hear it without the elves in the background though. Oh, but no. She's not done. What does one do after having two other amazing singers perform with you? You get Snoop Dogg and Jermaine to join in another song. As one naturally does.

Apple TV+ Also, I'm pretty sure it's Mariah Carey doing the whistle notes in this song as well. Can confirm. It's her. nikkipedia👩🎤 @nikkikoppers Would like to personally thank the person who captioned the Mariah Carey Christmas special. 02:52 AM - 09 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite After your eyeballs have been graced with the beautiful presence of Misty, Mariah sings another song (surprise!) but this time in a magical winter wonderland forest. Bear with me, we're almost done. Apple TV+ "Sometimes when you're lost you can find the most beautiful things." — Mariah Carey, but also me in the cookie aisle of Target. But oh no. With a surprising turn of events, Mariah (we're on a first-name basis now) wakes up from a snooze, showing it was all just a dream. *sigh*.

Heather Schlitt @prettyschlitty1 I’m not crying at Mariah Carey’s Christmas Special, you’re crying! 😭😭😭🎄🎄🎄 08:30 PM - 05 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite This dress is everything. EVERYTHING. I'd like a replica for my wedding, thanks. Apple TV+ Well, she did it. She saved Christmas. Mariah Carey brought us all the holiday cheer we've been missing. Nick Starr @NickStarrMusic The Mariah Carey Christmas Special is ridiculous and amazing and exactly what I needed tonight. 03:10 AM - 09 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Don't worry, though. She ends the special with her iconic (what should be a national anthem at this point) Christmas song "All I Want For Christmas Is You." Apple TV+ That's it. I can die happy now. meg @moneyymegs I just watched the Mariah Carey Christmas Special with my mom and I think my seasonal depression is cured 11:24 PM - 06 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite We all can. UnderMeech The Tree 🎁 @MediumSizeMeech Tonight I was watching Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special with my 4 year old son and he said “papa, is that the new president?” and I said “yes son, yes it is” 11:33 PM - 04 Dec 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite What was your favorite part of the special?
