Mariah Carey: Queen of Christmas 2010?

Photo Courtesy - Island | Def Jam Records(NEW YORK) --  If there's any celebrity who deserves the title of Queen of Christmas 2010, it's got to be Mariah Carey. In the last few months, she released a new Christmas album and scored a bona fide, chart-topping Christmas hit with "Oh Santa."

The festive diva also starred in her own ABC Christmas special and sang on NBC's Christmas in Rockefeller Center special. On top of that, she performed for President Obama and his family on the annual TNT special Christmas in Washington.

Her song, "All I Want for Christmas Is You," continues to be one of the most popular holiday tunes ever, topping Billboard's chart of the 100 Most Popular Seasonal Songs.

In past years, Carey has celebrated Christmas by taking hubby Nick Cannon and a bunch of friends to Aspen, Colo., where they enjoy sleigh rides, jumping into hot tubs and literally rolling in the snow. That won't be happening this year, though, since Carey is pregnant with twins.

"One of the things we really like to do is go to church on Christmas and have, like, a candlelight moment," Carey told ABC News Radio. “That’s been a really kind of intimate, real Christmas tradition that we have, as well as all the other silly stuff that I do."

There's one tradition she will definitely miss this year due to her pregnancy, though -- drinking hot chocolate with butterscotch schnapps.
