‘Tis the season to bicker about Starbucks coffee cups.
Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit like a chill in the air, Christmas songs in every store, and anger about a phony “War on Christmas.” Clearly, love for one another, world peace, and the Christian faith itself all ride on whether a chain that sells overpriced coffee prints an appropriate design on its red cups.
Honestly, this griping over coffee cups couldn’t be any less in the Christmas spirit than the Grinch himself.
If you’re living under a rock and haven’t heard yet, Starbucks released a simple red cup as its holiday design this year, with nothing on it besides the company’s green and white logo. A few Christians got steamed because the cups don’t display the reindeer or snowmen they did in previous years.
Because reindeer and snowmen are sacred religious symbols, of course.
