It may not be Halloween yet, but Dolly Parton is already in the Christmas spirit. The country legend shared some of her Christmas catalog in a humorous tweet that compared herself to RuPaul.

In the tweet, Parton compared a picture of herself in a Christmas-themed turtle neck to a picture of RuPaul also wearing a turtle neck sweater. She wrote, “Who wore it best? Turtleneck edition” with a winking emoji.

Parton included a link to her online store with a variety of Christmas swag. The turtle neck the singer model is $99, which includes a CD copy of Parton’s A Holly Dolly Christmas. The store is also selling T-shirts, pajama sets, and mugs.

Dolly Parton is releasing a Christmas themed album and Netflix special.

Christmas seems to be one of the singer’s favorite holidays. Parton has recorded three Christmas albums across her career, including A Holly Dolly Christmas. The album is scheduled to be released on Oct.2. Parton will be joined by a cast of fellow singers including Michael Bublé, Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Parton’s goddaughter Miley Cyrus.

“I thought, ‘I think I’ll call it A Holly Dolly Christmas because I love the song ‘A Holly Jolly Christmas’ with Burl Ives,” she told Billboard. “He used to be on all of my Christmas specials all through the years. I think of him as Mr. Christmas. I thought, ‘Why don’t do I call it something cute and clever, like that or Deck the Halls with Boughs of Dolly, something corny like that.’”

On Nov. 22, Parton will also release a new Christmas special on Netflix. The film is titled Dolly Parton’s Christmas on The Square.

The special will feature 14 original songs performed by Parton. The film follows a rich woman named Regina (Christine Baranski) who tries to sell her father’s land to a developer. However, she has a change of heart after meeting her guardian angel (Parton), which leads Regina to rekindle connections with her hometown.
