Starbucks 2009 Christmas Mug

Last year (2009) Starbucks had a kind of “Peace on Earth” theme for their Christmas merchandise. Pretty much everything (including their Christmas Blend) had images of white gift tags with words like “Joy”, “Peace”, “Hope”, “Wish”, etc on each tag.

I have a feeling that there was some sort of charity fund raising that was being held at the same time by Starbucks but the Starbucks in Japan didn’t really advertise it well and very little information was available for customers (in English or Japanese) besides a slogan saying something like “Help someone else” or something. 😐

Anyway… 2009′s Christmas Mug departs quite a bit from previous mugs. It tosses the snow theme and focuses on a Christmas Tree look with dark crimson branches in the background and white gift tag / ornaments on the foreground with the previously mentioned words.

I do like the look but I have to be honest and say it’s my least favourite Starbucks Christmas mug so far. I don’t hate it. It’s just not as magical as 2008′s mug.
