Mariah Carey Strips Down for Christmas

How does Mariah Carey plan to make the season bright for hubby of six months Nick Cannon?

"I always get Santa lingerie, even if nobody sees it," the singer, 39, tells Redbook' for its December issue. "But this year it will be appreciated!"

Stripping down for the holidays is apparently a Carey holiday tradition.

"[My girlfriends and I] go in the hot tub in our Christmas bikinis, then roll in the fresh snow and jump back in," says the songbird, who usually opts for "a red bikini with a Santa hat."

But that doesn't mean she isn't excited about starting her own sweet traditions with Cannon.

"I'm really looking forward to being in love on Christmas," she says. "The holidays are always great, but being in love ... is going to be the icing on the cake."
