The long-awaited Starbucks holiday cup for this year has been released and it promotes a positive message.
Although the cup has received mixed reviews on social media, its uplifting message has been noted by many. The cup is almost completely green in color and is covered in various illustrations of people drawn in one continuous line, with a white circle in the cup's middle. The Starbucks holiday cup was designed as a direct response to the divisiveness that has been apparent in America throughout the past year's election cycle. It was created to represent a "symbol of unity as a reminder of our shared values."
Although not appealing to some who would have preferred more literal interpretations of the holiday season on this cup, Starbucks has managed to embody what the season is supposed to represent in terms of community, sharing and values.
