Some people are up in arms over the red cup from Starbucks. I've come up with some easy fixes to the problem. 

Starbucks is trying to sell this year’s design as another way to create your own stories with a red cup that mimics a blank canvas. Some customers aren't falling for it. It's OK to say 'Merry Christmas." "Happy Holidays" is good too as it encompasses Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.

According to USA Today,

Josua Feuerstein, an Arizona-based evangelist, posted a Facebook video on Nov. 5, accusing the coffee giant of removing the Christmas pattern because the company “hates Jesus.”

The video had been viewed more than 15 million times as of Wednesday.

"Do you realize that Starbucks wanted to take Christ and Christmas off of their brand new cups?" Feuerstein asked. "That's why they're just plain red."

Earlier this week, many used #MerryChristmasStarbucks to slam the company on Twitter.

The controversy extended beyond the Internet and into the realm of politics on Nov. 9, when Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested that a boycott against the company.

In response to the continuing debate over the cup, many are using the hashtag #ItsJustACup to point out there are many bigger issues people should be focusing on.

If you need your Starbucks, and the simple red cup bugs you that much then try these easy fixes.

When asked for your name say it's:

  • Merry Christmas
  • Santa Clause
  • Christmas Eve
  • Christmas Blessings
  • Christmas Joy
  • Happy Birthday Jesus
  • Holly Jolly Christmas
  • Magical Christmas
  • Peace on Earth
  • Rejoice
  • Spreading Christmas Cheer
  • The Spirit of Christmas
  • White Christmas

But all I did is what Starbucks is encouraging customers to do, and make their own stories.
