Forget sitting by the fire, yule logs, eggnogg, hanging stockings and all that nonsense.

Those things might be nice, but we all know that the festive period can't officially start until we've donned some tinsel and pranced around singing along to one of Mariah Carey's Christmas songs.

For a while, we've had to make do with warbled renditions of 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' and 'Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town' but praise be to the spirits of the holidays, for we have been blessed with a brand new video for this year's Mariah masterpiece: 'Here Comes Santa Claus.'

And true to form, she's bringing the festive cheer in a open-front glitter bodycon dress, flanked by semi-nude gold body-paint covered trumpeters.
