It's not just the most wonderful time of the year, it's also the most controversial time of the year because of Starbucks holiday cups, and they just unveiled their new ones!
For the past few years, for whatever reason, the cups have made a handful of people OUTRAGED . . . for their role in the War on Christmas, which is VERY REAL and not at all ratings-bait or clickbait.
In 2015, some people thought their minimalist all-red cups were anti-Christmas . . . and last year, people thought one of their cups showed a same-sex couple holding hands.
Here are this year's four designs, and they seem pretty Christmas-y. So I don't see anything immediately that will outrage people, but then again, I'm not insane so I'm not the best judge . . .
1. A cup with bright red, dark red, white, and gold vertical stripes.
2. A cup with red and white flame patterns.
3. A white cup with light green holly and red berries.
4. A green cup with an argyle-style pattern, featuring big white stars.
(Here are the cups. Also, if you go to Starbucks today and order a holiday drink, you'll get a free reusable red holiday cup.)
