The new Starbucks holiday cups are green. But why?



The classic red holiday cups from Starbucks are out -- or are they? 

Tuesday, a holiday cup featuring a mosaic of more than 100 people drawn in a single stroke hit Starbucks cafes. 

Usually this time of year, Starbucks rolls out a festive red holiday cup, but this year it is green. 

"During a divisive time in our country, Starbucks wanted to create a symbol of unity as a reminder of our shared values, and the need to be good to each other," Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said in a statement to CNN

Last year the company ditched its classic seasonal designs for a simpler, two-toned red cup. Many people called that move a war on Christmas. 

Think of what the people will say now!

But, many people are saying these might not actually be the official Starbucks holiday cups. 

Tuesday Starbucks said the rest of the company's plans "are still under wraps." Many fans have noticed boxes at Starbucks stores labeled "no peeking" until Nov. 10. 

On top of that, last week one Reddit user posted a photo that showed a stack of the red Starbucks holiday cups.
