Mariah Carey returns to New York’s Beacon Theatre for her favorite time of year. The vocalist is back for her third annual “All I Want For Christmas Is You” concert series this December.

“I’m so happy to announce that I’ll be back at the Beacon Theatre in December for my third annual All I Want For Christmas Is You concert series,” Carey posted on Instagram to announce her triumphant return for five shows on Dec. 5, 7, 8, 13 and 14.

Last year’s holiday spectacular included a children’s choir, an appearance from Santa himself, a handful of costume changes. The queen of pop belted classics like “O Holy Night” and served up some fan favorites including “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).”

General ticket sales begin Saturday, Oct. 22.
