To Mariah Carey, “Christmas in July” apparently means leaving your tree up...until July.
Ryan Seacrest , asking “when is it appropriate to take down your Christmas tree and decorations? Asking for a friend." And the Queen of Christmas, of course, , “Dahhling! Not till July 4th!”
We're sure she was joking about leaving it up until July, but it seems like Carey is making an effort to keep that tree shining until, if not Independence day, at least Valentine’s Day. According to (which quotes unconfirmed sources/elves), Carey paid $800 dollars for her tree, which has its own humidifier to keep it from losing its needles.
For her sake, we hope she eventually replaces it with a fake Christmas tree. Otherwise, that thing is gonna dry out and light up faster than a sparkler on New Year’s Eve (a holiday which Carey hasn't always had the best luck with).
