Mariah Carey and McDonald’s are Partnering For the Christmas Holiday

No one does Christmas quite like Mariah Carey. The “All I Want For Christmas Is You” singer is diving headfirst into the holiday season with new music and a music special to help fans deck the halls. Carey, known as the queen of Christmas, is also partnering with McDonald’s to bring customers a special holiday menu.

As it turns out, McDonald’s is one of Carey’s favorite fast-food chains and one she frequents with her children. She’s hoping to spread magic to its patrons with a free menu for some of the restaurant’s most popular items.

McDonald’s debuts special holiday menu with Mariah Carey

Carey and McDonald’s have curated a special holiday meal promotion for her fans and the restaurant’s customers. Modeled after the popular “12 Days of Christmas” theme, the “Mariah Menu” gives customers “12 days of deals.” 

Beginning Dec. 13, customers who make a $1 minimum purchase on the app will be rewarded with a different free menu item daily. The promo ends on Christmas Eve. Items featured on the menu include Big Mac (available Dec. 13), a six-piece Chicken McNuggets (Dec. 16), and Carey’s personal favorite, a cheeseburger (Dec. 17). Each item will come in special packaging.

The partnership is a dream come true for Carey. ​​”Some of my favorite memories with my kids are our family trips to McDonald’s, and of course, each of us has our go-to order. Mine is the Cheeseburger, and I get it with extra pickles,” the singer said in a statement. “Bringing together some of our favorite food from McDonald’s with my all-time favorite season is a holiday wish come true.” 

“Mariah goes with the holidays like ketchup and fries, so we couldn’t think of a better partner to help us celebrate the upcoming season,” Jennifer Healan, vice president of marketing, brand content, and engagement of McDonald’s USA said in a statement. 

Mariah Carey has a lot in store for this Christmas season

The McDonald’s partnership isn’t the only project Carey has in the works this Christmas season. She recently released a new holiday single and accompanying music video. The song, “Fall in Love at Christmas,” features Kirk Franklin and DJ Khalid. Carey’s 11-year-old twins – Moroccan and Monroe – whom she shares with her ex-husband Nick Cannon also make an appearance in the music video.

The singer is returning to Apple TV with a new holiday special. She teamed up with the streaming app in 2020 for Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special. This year, her special Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues will feature the first live performance of “Fall in Love at Christmas.” It’s set to air on the app in December.

As always, Carey’s 1994 classic “All I Want for Christmas is You” continues to reign as the holiday favorite year to year. This season, the song has already entered the top 200 on the Billboard charts. Last year, the song broke Spotify records as the most-streamed song in one day (Dec. 25) on the platform.
