For a lot of folks, their first thought when they hear the phrase “Christmas music” is Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You.” Every December, the song rockets up the charts, cementing Carey as one of the most holly jolly superstars there are.

    Now, she’s taken her love of Christmas even further with “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special,” which debuted December 4 on Apple TV+. The 44-minute program features a mix of short skits and yuletide music performances that show off Carey’s vocals and holiday spirit.

    Per Billboard, the special focuses on Carey helping Santa solve the issue of people’s lost Christmas cheer after a difficult 2020.

    “We can’t just let the bleakness of the current place we are at in the world foil all of the extra fun things that we do every year,” Carey told Billboard.

    With Christmas fast approaching, we could all use a boost of holiday joy, so here’s how you can watch “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special.”

    Right now, the special is only available on Apple TV+. A subscription costs $4.99 per month and includes a week’s free trial, but anyone who purchases a new Apple device receives one year of the service free.

    An album of the show’s songs is also available on Apple Music.

    While Carey is the undisputed star, she brings along plenty of A-list friends to help celebrate the holidays. Most notable is a performance of Carey’s 2010 track “Oh Santa!” featuring Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson.

    Elsewhere, actor and comedian Tiffany Haddish provides narration, while Billy Eichner plays an elf. (Eichner and Carey collaborated on a Christmas episode of his show Billy on the Street last year.) Past Carey collaborators Jermaine Dupri and Snoop Dogg also drop in, and there’s even a skit starring classic characters from the Peanuts cartoon strip.

    In addition to the success of “All I Want for Christmas is You,” which finally reached No. 1 on the Hot 100 in 2019 (25 years after its initial release), Carey has a long list of Christmas projects.

    She’s released Merry Christmas and Merry Christmas II You, a pair of successful albums featuring covers of holiday standards like “The First Noel,” “Joy to the World,” and “O Holy Night,” as well as a few of Carey’s own originals.

    Carey has also done clever promotions including “25 Days of Mariah Christmas,” in which fans got a new piece of holiday content every day, including special live performances.

    Christmas 2020 is sure to look different for many of us, but one thing we can take comfort in is that Mariah Carey–who’s almost as important to the season as Santa himself at this point–is still here to celebrate.
