The USPS mailed an ad for their “holiday” stamps and proudly showcased the words Hanukkah, Kwaanza…and a gingerbread house on them. Where is Christmas?
Ooops. No wonder the postal service is bankrupt.
Did anyone in their crack research department happen to check out how many people send out mail associated with Hanukkah, Kwaanza and…gingerbread houses during the “holiday” season?
The Blaze was the first the notice the outcry in social media.
Now, it would be worthy to note that the USPS does offer Christian religious themed stamps. They have a Holy Family stamp and a Virgin and Baby stamp. They just weren’t showcased on this particular mailer.
However, as several emailers have pointed out to us nowhere in their “holiday” offering of stamps does the USPS use the word “Christmas”. Kwaanza is shown twice.
What to do? What to do? What to do?
After all, it’s not like the USPS can make the naughty lists of those who won’t say Christmas. And it is not like consumers have a choice of using a competitor to mail a Christmas card.
So they’re complaining. Loudly.
Your government at work — of the people, for the people, by the people.
