    Guess which one that the post office is not making a commemorative stamp for this year??

    I am not a big "War on Christmas" Guy but if you are going to allow the other traditions and religions to be honored, why not allow the Christian tradition to be honored?

    Where’s Christmas? As one social media commentator rapidly noticed, a recent U.S. Postal Service advertisement to sell “holiday stamps” curiously omitted a Christmas or Christian-themed message, yet included portrayals of Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.

    The ad reported by The Blaze contained the text: “Don’t forget your holiday stamps. You’ll find them at your nearest post office or on eBay.” And below the text were pictures of three stamps: One showed a candle holder with nine lighted candles, emblazoned with the word “Hanukkah.” Another showed an colorful symbol over an open book, above the block-type word “Kwanzaa.”

    And the third, in the middle, showed — a gingerbread house.
    Twitter reflected the outrage of at least one eagle-eyed writer.
    The poster @RennaW said: “Don’t forget those three American holidays: Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and … gingerbread house.” The same poster followed with another comment: “What happened to Christmas?” And a couple more, from the same poster: “Oh yeah, because Christians celebrate the Holy Day of Gingerbread House, seriously? This is awful” and “I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a very merry Gingerbread House.”

    I'm sorry, but the appropriate reaction is who gives a fuck.

    I know you say you are not a big "War on Christmas" guy but if this doesn't prove that there really is a war on Christmas I guess nothing will.

    I will be pissed if there is not a Festivus stamp. :mad:

    Also, there is a Christmas stamp.
    Why do you always post such nonsense?

    You so wish you were a fat, black, lesbian refugee in a wheelchair. So sad.
