Last year, Carey's 1994 classic "All I Want for Christmas is You" hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, also becoming the first song in the chart's history to have had three distinct runs at the top ranking. Also in 2021, Carey attempted to register the term "Queen of Christmas," which upset carolers Darlene Love and Elizabeth Chan, so much so that the latter went to court to prevent Carey and other artists from using the title.
Carey later expressed her thoughts on the matter, saying, "That was other people, and I just want to humbly say that I don’t consider myself that. I’m someone that loves Christmas, that happened to be blessed to write ‘All I want For Christmas Is You.’ And a lot of other Christmas songs. And let’s face it, you know, everybody’s faith is what it is. But to me, [the Virgin] Mary is the Queen of Christmas.”
