23 Reasons Mariah Carey Is The Undisputed Queen Of Christmas (And Always Will Be, Darling)

Mariah Carey is the Undisputed Queen of Christmas. Seriously, can you think of anyone else, other than Santa (maybe), who publicly advocates for Christmas as much as Mariah Carey? NO, YOU CAN'T BECAUSE MARIAH RULES THE HOLIDAYS. A Mimi Christmas record is a must for everyone, not just her fans. I know this because my mother "does not care for Mariah Carey" and yet you can still hear "All I Want For Christmas" being played in her house every December, which is exactly as it should be. No matter your opinion on Mariah, you can't deny it: She's the Christmas Queen.

Mariah Carey is to Christmas what turkey is to Thanksgiving. She is what fireworks are to the 4th of July. She is what the bunny is to Easter. Forget Santa—Mariah is the magical entity that makes the holiday season all the more exciting. It's not like you're waiting for anyone else to belt it out at the Rockefeller Center tree lighting, are you? She's the Mrs. Claus you never saw coming, Christmas' ultimate cheerleader, believer and bringer of glittery things! OK, I'm getting worked but, but if you're in doubt, ask yourself: What would Christmas be like if Mariah didn't exist? You're probably weeing in your own pants right now, as that is how terrifying that alternate reality would be. To further convince you, here are 23 reasons why Mariah is the Undisputed Queen of Christmas.
