Starbucks is taking a hit because it made red cups for the holidays, with no Christmas imagery on them. Some people think it’s part of the “War on Christmas.”
The weird thing is, the stuff that’s supposed to be part of the War on Christmas is the same sort of commercialism that people scream is taking the meaning out of Christmas.
So what makes it a war on Christmas: Making it commercial instead of religious, or not making the commercialism religious enough?
(FYI: If Starbucks puts little green men on its cups in December; if Target decorates in black and white, with no red or green in sight; if another store has Hawaiian vacation scenes instead of elves or Mangers…You can still celebrate Christmas any way you want to. You know that, right?)
