To develop this year's cups, Starbucks' designers drew inspiration from Christmas movies and songs, as well as previous iterations of the signature vessel.

To receive the free, limited-edition red cup, customers must order a holiday beverage.

Of course, a new holiday season also means new festive cup designs as well.

Qualifying holiday beverages include any size hot, iced or blended of the following: Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Eggnog Latte, Hot Chocolate, Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Peppermint Mocha, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, Salted Caramel Mocha and Toasted White Chocolate Mocha.

Just as the PSL is a harbinger for fall for Starbucks' fans around the world, the return of the Gingerbread Latte marks the beginning of the holiday season. It's fun, festive and uniquely Starbucks.

Major streaming platforms are set to take action against "improper password sharing" as the number of services on offer increases. Charter Communications' CEO Tom Rutledge said last month: "It's just too easy to get the product without paying for it".

Typography is used as the main illustrative element for three of the designs, with whole letters playfully rotated for a musical, song-like quality, while polka dots playfully cover the fourth. Each cup has a unifying green stripe on the back, similar to a ribbon. But up close, its tiny type offers a happy sentiment.

All four cups use traditional colors, red and green, although that was a point of contention in the past.

Additionally, the holiday cups will not be available at San Francisco, Atlanta, and Minneapolis-St. In fun, block letters created to look like falling snow, the cup says "Merry Coffee", which is for the seasonal greeting we all need to start using.

Christmas has come early for caffeine-lovers as Starbucks annual holiday red cups officially hit stores on November 7, with four new seasonal designs for fans to snap a red cup-selfie with.
