Starbucks is Saving Christmas

Posted on November 7, 2015


I know that there has been a lot going around about how Starbucks hates Christmas (see here). But it is not true. In fact they love it. They have gone undercover to save Christmas. Don’t believe me? Let me show you:

The Red Cup that says nothing.

So many have accused Starbucks of hating Jesus for this cup, but it is in fact a clever ploy to bring Jesus back into Christmas. Remember the bracelets they used to had out to kids at the end of Christian camp, vbs, AWANA, etc.? Do you remember the colors?

The way a good cup of joe from Sbucks is brewed; it is black as death. The death we all deserve for our sin! The cup, red, the color of the blood that cleanses us. It makes us white as snow, just like the white of the Sbucks logo. So that we might grow (green of the logo). The gospel in a cup!

Not convinced? What about the siren of their logo? The choice of becoming a true human being or a monster for all eternity.

So what about the press release explaining the meaning of the cups. Let’s take a look.

“In the past, we have told stories with our holiday cups designs,” said Fields. “This year we wanted to usher in the holidays with a purity of design that welcomes all of our stories.”

So, the Red Cup representing the blood of Christ welcomes all of us, all of our stories to come to repentance. It is like you are taking Holy Communion every time you get Starbucks.

“Starbucks has become a place of sanctuary during the holidays,” he said. “We’re embracing the simplicity and the quietness of it. It’s [a] more open way to usher in the holiday.”

Christ is a sanctuary for those who seek him, who come into his presence. Be still and know that God is open to all of us this holiday, particularly as we hold our starbucks cups and see the true meaning of Christmas in them.

We as Christians must rise up and support this underdog who is taking the holiday back from mass commercialism, selling, instead of worthless things, the Red Cup of the Gospel.

Note: this is written in satire (hopefully that was obvious). Expecting a secular company to maintain our faith’s creeds and beliefs is a one way ticket to dissatisfaction. I hope you enjoyed.
