Mariah Carey Loses Bid To Trademark ‘Queen Of Christmas’
Mariah Carey might be known as the Queen of Christmas to her fandom, but on Nov. 15, the U.S.
Trademark Trial and Appeal Board denied her exclusive legal rights to the title.
In March 2021, the “All I Want For Christmas” singer applied to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for rights to the title.
Records from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office show that she had hoped to use the title to sell items such as perfume, clothing, footwear, and certain beverages.
In recent years, fans of the singer with a five-octave vocal range have turned to her to signal the Christmas season by saying, “it’s time!”
Just last month, on Oct. 31, the singer shared an Instagram post that further prompted fans to affirm that she was the Queen of Christmas.
The viral video began in black and white and saw Carey dressed as a wicked witch while pedaling on an exercise bike to the sounds of “The Wizard of Oz.”
A dramatic gust of wind snatched the eerie scene away to reveal Carey in full color and dressed in a Santa-Clause suit.
“It’s time!” she san in her signature high-pitched whistle as the early beats of “All I Want For Christmas is You” began to play.
“Queen of Christmas is HERE!!!” actor Kerry Washington wrote in response to the post.
“It’s officially that time of year!!!! #QoC” another fan of the video wrote.
Still, not all have been on board with the vocalist’s attempts to clinch the title of Christmas monarch all for herself.
