Mariah Carey Won’t Play “All I Want For Christmas Is You” Until After Thanksgiving

For those of you who like to listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving, listen up!

Even Mariah Carey won’t listen to her big holiday hit before turkey day. Carey told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show when it comes to All I Want For Christmas Is You, “I have this rule where I try to get through Thanksgiving. I don’t like when people rush it because once I start I don’t stop until after New Year.”

The song was originally released in 1994 and has become a holiday staple…but Mariah says to wait until Friday to start listening to it. You can check it out below.
