It's that time of year once again when we say goodbye to everything Pumpkin Spice and hello to all that is Chocolate Mint. It's time to celebrate the Festival of Lights and wrap twinkly business around anything that doesn't move.
It's time to sing with joy about Jesus and Santa, and reindeer and melting snowmen. It's time to gather around the fire with family and friends, give gifts, spike our hot chocolate and go ice skating in circles.
The coffee chain released this year's holiday cup, and the internet couldn't wait to throw down. In one corner: Conservative Christians. In the other corner: the entire rest of the world that realizes Christmas isn't the only holiday.
on a scale of 1 to 10 how pissed are all you fuckers about the holiday starbucks cups this year— cassy 🔮 (@probablypsychic) November 3, 2017
Hey Starbucks, unless your Holiday cups capture the magic of Mary’s face contorted in mid-contraction agony, I’m saying you hate Christmas.— Nicholas (@nickcalder) November 2, 2017
Still no picture of Jesus unwrapping a machine gun. Shame on you!— Umidude (@umidude) November 2, 2017
Starbucks decided that this holiday season everyone can go fuck themselves and color the cup however they please. I like their approach.— Ms. L 🖤 (@sarcasticLory) November 1, 2017
Starbucks this year was like “Every year you guys get mad, so you know what? Here’s every holiday design on one cup. Color it yourself.”— Kaitlyn Leibman (@KaitlynLeibman) November 2, 2017
