THIS STUFF BUGS ME SO MUCH……..does it you? So Starbucks has plain red cups this year for the Christmas (okay…some might prefer I say HOLIDAY) Season. I’ll never say Happy Holidays…EVER. Yes, Christians are complaining because the cups don’t have snowflakes on them. How Christian are snowflakes, anyway?? And who cares?
It’s not like Starbucks had the baby Jesus on their cups and this year they’re just red. At least the red seems Christmassy with the green /white Starbucks logo, right? Green and Red, right?
That some Christians are upset is beyond me…….I like one pastor’s idea of telling the barista “Merry Christmas” when you’re asked for your name, for them to write it on the cup…..then the barista has to say “Merry Christmas!” when your drink’s ready, right? 🙂
Yes, this article’s in the Huff Post, which absolutely seems to LOVE publishing any article they can find that makes Christians look bad (believe me, it’s almost every single day), but this kind of story was asking for it…….
Are you upset about this!? WHY?
By the way, I think Starbucks coffee is the worst ever, but I thought this was worth talking about…..are we in for yet another Christmas season when we’re constantly having to defend the faith, wish people would say Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays, call a Christmas tree other than Holiday tree, etc? If we are, maybe red cups aren’t important enough to gripe about; some things ARE.
What bugs you the most of the types of things that people are suddenly not doing at CHRISTMAS the last few years? And, really, SHOULD we complain?
