Starbucks has premiered its 2019 holiday cup designs, offering “mini moments of joy,” according to Jen Quotson, vice president of Starbucks Creative.

If red (white and green) cups are back at Starbucks, can Christmas be far behind?

The coffee giant on Thursday premiered its holiday designs “created to evoke mini moments of joy for customers and partners. It’s fun, festive and uniquely Starbucks,” said Jen Quotson, vice president of Starbucks Creative.

Customers who order a holiday beverage at participating Starbucks on Thursday receive a free limited-edition reusable red cup while supplies last.

Participating Starbucks today are offering a free limited-edition reusable red cup while supplies last.

Better still, bring back the reusable red cup to a participating Starbucks after 2 p.m. today through Jan. 6 and get 50 cents off a handcrafted grande (16-ounce) holiday beverage.

Go now for your first fix of Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte or Eggnog Latte in a holiday cup. Supplies may not last long.

In-the-know Starbucks fans were ready:

Others were not so hyped-up — or so lucky (Sorry, Karen):

Stores across the U.S. and Canada are decked out for the holidays, too.

“We wanted coming to Starbucks to be like uncovering a present,” Quotson said.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
