For nearly 30 years, the Christmas season has been anchored by Carey's enduring holiday hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You.
Its most recent contribution to the song's success from 1994 came from the singer herself.
Elizabeth Chan, a singer and performer, calls herself the "Queen of Christmas" on her social media accounts.
She is renowned for singing holiday tunes all year long, and among her earlier works is the "10th anniversary" album Queen of Christmas.
Christmas is a time for giving, not for taking, and it is wrong for someone to try to monopolise a moniker like "Queen of Christmas" in order to indulge in obscene materialism.
