The release of the annual Starbucks holiday cup is always one of the most exciting days of the season and it’s finally here! After last year’s controversial plain red cup, Starbucks fans were shocked when the coffee company released a green cup on the same day as the holiday flavors. However, all of the chaos has been (hopefully) settled with the release of 13 new cup designs.
Designed by Starbucks customers from six different countries, this year’s release is a celebration of the longstanding unofficial tradition of customers’ natural tendency to decorate their cups.
“We hope that this year’s red holiday cup designs express the shared spirit of the holidays as told by our customers,” said Sharon Rothstein, the Starbucks global chief marketing officer.
To add to the joy, Starbucks is having a Share the Cheer promotion. If you buy a holiday drink from November 10 to 14 at 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., you will receive a free one! (If you’re a Starbucks Rewards member, the special runs until 6 p.m.)
Because the best part of the red holiday cups is taking photos of them, we want to see your Starbucks selfies! Add #omjstyle to your Instagram caption and your posts will be featured in our style section.
