Red Cup or Not, What do the Holidays Mean to You?

Despite string lights and snowflake decorations having been up in shops since September, the holidays snuck up on us crazy fast.

But recently, the warmth of the holidays has gone kinda cold, with some controversy over a certain red coffee cup taking place of the holiday hype.

So this week, we decided to combine art, coffee cup canvases, and the true meaning of this time of year by having our artists answer, what do the holidays mean to youon a coffee cup (if they were so able).

Check out their answers below!

Every year, my extended family gets together for New Years, and naturally we mark our red plastic cups with our names. Every year, I draw a rocket instead.

Love of family, friends, and food! (PLUS TOYS!) I have a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old pair of boys, so there’s no shortage of toys and playtime over the holidays.

Holidays mean family time for me now. Kids growing so fast and as a father of two, I don’t want to miss any single moment with them.

To me, holidays mean spending time with my family and friends. Love everything about this season – the house is full of people, the fireplace is on and the house is warm and cozy. All the traditional food is cooked with love and everyone is happy.
