Starbucks Holiday Cups Controversy And Blogmas

Starbucks holiday cups controversy and blogmas

So, we are five days into Blogmas and it’s been quite an interesting road. I decided almost at the last minute that I would do Blogmas. However, I think it can be really rewarding. At first, I thought it would be very hard and wouldn’t go along with the overall sentiment of Girl In Gamba. I think in doing Blogmas, I’ve been trying to keep up with the think pieces. I’ve also been trying to keep up with the advice pieces. How have I been doing? Let me know in the comments! So, I’m happy I’m doing Blogmas and I’m so excited for the future. Now, when I think of Christmas and the holidays, the Starbucks holiday cups definitely come to mind.

The Starbucks holiday cups seem to have controversy every year. However, the controversy around the cups this year has been minimal. I remember last year that people were so outraged about the green cups that weren’t a part of the Starbucks holiday cups collection. The year before that people accused Starbucks of being anti-Christmas with their red holiday cups. I kind of thought this was ridiculous, but maybe it worked well for Starbucks. Before that Starbucks holiday cups controversy, I didn’t really pay attention to their holiday cups. Now, every year I’m excited to see what new designs they’ll have. It’s almost like a Christmas present!

The thing about the 2015 Starbucks holiday cups controversy was that Starbucks took ‘Christ’ out of Christmas. I don’t really remember Christmas being on the cups before, but I know that not everyone celebrates it. Around the holidays is also Hannukkah, which is celebrated by Jewish people. So, I would assume that Starbucks wouldn’t want to isolate anyone around the holidays.

Lately, I have wondered if there will be a new Starbucks holiday cups controversy. Things actually have seemed to be quiet in regards to that. However, there has been a controversy. Back in early November, there was a very small Starbucks holiday cups controversy. Basically, some people thought the hands on the cups were the hands of lesbians and that Starbucks is trying to push a gay agenda. I really think this is quite a stretch. In fact, I thought the hands were the hands of one person.

So, as I continue with this Blogmas journey, I want to keep up with the holiday spirit. I am definitely getting into the holiday cheer! Furthermore, I am actually having a lot of fun with these Blogmas posts! If you have any suggestions for what I should write about for Blogmas or even for 2018, let me know in the comments!
