There is one thing that puts me immediately into the holiday spirit and that is when Starbucks switches from their traditional cups to the red ones. I’m not sure what it is about these cups, but they make me so happy. When the barista calls my name and my hot Peppermint Mocha is ready, I drift into another place. I think of cold winters and the smell of freshly fallen snow. I have visions of trying to catch snow flakes on my tongue and making snow angels while bundled in layers of clothing. Then, I step outside and reality hits me in the face…along with the 90 degree Florida temperatures and I am quickly whisked back.
