Last year there was a lot of controversy over the cups from Starbucks. I personally didn’t care too much about it BUT for many it was a sign that Starbucks was withdrawing from Christmas. Instead of a “festive cup”, their holiday cup was just red. People felt that references to Christmas and Jesus should be on the cup.
For Canada, we have so many religions that we cannot make everyone happy…or can we. Starbucks at women from around the world design this year’s holiday theme cups. Women from U.S, Indonesia, Dubai, Canada, Russia and South Korea (just to name a few), are credited with coming up with this year’s designs.
I love seeing a little more to them…I had the Christmas lights one…and it made me smile. Although, let’s wait until after Remembrance day to get all festive.
