Coffee Cups, Candace, and Christmas

In SAVING CHRISTMAS, Kirk Cameron attends a Christmas party at the home of his sister—played by his real-life sister Bridgette Ridenour. (An aside: one of the bonus features on the SAVING CHRISTMAS DVD is Kirk and Bridgette reliving some of their favorite Cameron Christmas memories from their childhoods.)

Another sister is Candace Cameron Bure, who also is one of the hosts of the television show The View. Weighing in on what has become the biggest “controversy” of the Christmas season this year, Candace posted a picture of the Starbucks plain red cup on her Instagram.

Among here well-reasoned thoughts:

“Until Starbucks puts a baby Jesus or nativity scene on the cup while saying Merry Christmas, then pulls it because they say it’s offensive, let’s talk. I don't remember Starbucks ever being a Christian company, do you?”

Candace concludes with this:

“So, I will joyfully sip on my Starbucks coffee, in a plain red cup, and instead of complaining about the lack of decorations, I will lovingly share the good news of Jesus Christ with friends and co-workers or anyone who’s willing to engage in conversation. Merry Christmas to all!”

Sounds like another one of Kirk’s sisters is SAVING CHRISTMAS!
