There was a lot of hubbub over the fact that Starbucks released plain red cups for the holiday season last year, with some people (though many fewer than the controversy made it seem like) claiming they were being anti-Christian. Since Starbucks cups never included actual Christian symbols, the argument rang hollow to many. But apparently Starbucks paid attention.
Their new commercial for their red holiday cups points out that their customers designed various versions for 2016, including one with a Nativity scene as the below video shows. Though I’m not a regular Starbucks customer, I hope that this decision results in a more peaceful Christmas season for coffee lovers everywhere.
