Mariah who then tried to secure the rights to “Princess Christmas” and “Christmas Princess,” instead was also unsuccessful.

The singer who applied for the trademarks back in March of 2021 had faced some backlash.

The denial came on Tuesday, November 15, just after legends like Darlene Love and singer Elizabeth Chan pushed at the filing, arguing no one should “monopolize” the word “Christmas.”

Chan said: ‘Christmas is a season of giving, not the season of taking, and it is wrong for an individual to attempt to own and monopolize a nickname like Queen of Christmas for the purposes of abject materialism’

Meanwhile Louis Tompros, who led the legal team representing Chan, said: ‘This was a classic case of trademark bullying.

We are pleased with the victory, and delighted that we were able to help Elizabeth

fight back against Carey’s overreaching trademark registrations.’

Mariah had claimed in her filing that she planned to use the title for fragrances, lotions,

nail polish, jewelry, cups, mugs, chocolate milk, coconut water …

as well as ornaments, toys, dog clothing, masks, lingerie and sweatshirts.

Furthermore It’s become customary for Carey to promote her mid-90s studio album – Merry Christmas –

throughout the last two months of the year

The lead single is ubiquitous around the holiday season

as fans push it back to the top of the music charts year after year

Her seemingly inextricable association with the holiday has earned her the informal title of Queen of Christmas.
