If you’re like me, you’ve been in the holiday spirit for months now. You’ve carved your pumpkins, you’ve been on a hayride, and you’ve picked more apples than you ever thought possible. Essentially, you’ve done every fall activity humanly possible and you still have almost a month left until Thanksgiving. What’s a girl to do? If you’ve already consumed your body weight in PSLs and are ready to move onto the next major holiday, you’re in luck. Today, you can officially begin celebrating the holidays early because Starbucks just released their holiday drinks, and, of course, their signature holiday cups.
Today you can drink skinny peppermint mochas and gingerbread lattes to your heart’s desire while sporting a festive Starbucks cup to let the other basics know that you’re so over pumpkin spice. The release of the Starbucks holiday cup is something we’ve all been waiting for, as it provides the final touch to our outfit’s accessories. While they’ve always been red in some form or fashion, Starbs shook it up this year with a new green cup that’s honestly pretty awesome.
While it may seem to some that the reason for the season is fighting with Mom over why you don’t have a boyfriend yet or taking a drink every time Dad asks about a charge on his credit card statement, Starbucks has something a little different in mind. To them, the holidays are about unity, so their new holiday cups feature hundreds of individuals drawn in a single contiguous line to show that community is something we should truly be thankful for this November. If that doesn’t warm your heart like the chestnut praline latte you’re about to consume, you honestly might be the Grinch. Just saying. Now get yourself to Starbucks stat, because while the lines are sure to be extra long today, the eggnog latte you’ll get to consume will be extra worth it. Promise..
