The holiday season is upon us which means that the media, the entertainment industry, and many retailers are ready to reinstate their annual “War On Christmas”.
Christmas has become a bad word in many circles and unfortunately Starbucks is one of the companies that just can’t bring themselves to acknowledging the country’s most popular holiday celebrated by millions of people around the world.
Thankfully, some people aren’t letting them get away with it.
This guy, Joshua Feuerstein, has the right idea:
Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus … SO I PRANKED THEM … and they HATE IT!!!! #share

You may have heard by now that Starbucks is doing just a plain red cup for the Christmas season, rather than the festive cups that they’ve had in years past. The plain red is so they don’t offend anyone who doesn’t celebrate Christmas, but still acknowledging the holiday in some way. I guess? I mean, if they really don’t want to admit that Christmas exists, couldn’t they just use the regular white-and-pretentious cups that they have the rest of the year? I don’t know. I don’t even go to Starbucks. I don’t drink coffee and I can make better hot chocolate with regular 2% milk and the Swiss Miss mix I have in my cupboard at home.
Anyway – this guy has a pretty sweet idea for people who still want to patronize Starbucks, but are upset that they’ve fallen victim to the anti-Christmas PC Police. And, you know – it might be worth heading out for a Starbucks hot chocolate one day, just to do this.
