Are there religious stamps this year?

  • Follow Letters

The Post Office is advertising four different postal stamps for Christmas online.

Somehow there appears to be no religious stamp this year -- or are they hiding it and we can get them if we ask for it at the post office? I sure hope this is the case!

They are selling the "Madonna

They are selling the "Madonna and Sleeping Child" stamp this year. I think that qualifies as a religious stamp. Along with "Virgin and Child with Young John the Baptist". And I found them right there on the USPS website for sale.

Not sure what religion you

Not sure what religion you are Adelheid. Also not sure of your computer skills, but click under holiday stamps and there's a 'Madonna and Sleeping Child' and a "Hanukkah" stamp. There's also a 42 cent "Virgin and Child with the Young John the Baptist". This warrants a LTE?

postal stamps for

postal stamps for 'Christmas'
Jewish Hanukka, Muslims, have NOTHING to do with Christmas
Christmas is a CHRISTIAN celebration celebrating The Messiah Redeemer, Gods own Son Christ, his birth,whom Jewish and Muslim religions deny as their Messiah.
The 'Christmas Season' generates more sales in its short time than quarters of business, there is the fact we have work/school times off,vacations.We are made to remove God & Christ from government buildings/events,including schools but don't mess with financial gains or personal pleasure. It is (thankfully)
a mute subject.Hannukka religous events other than Christmas generate high sales as well.THE TRUE REASON FOR THE SEASON IS CHRIST. Others gleefully reap the rewards of sale prices,vacations. Stamps? USPS stands to profit,perhaps they are cautious in advertising for fear of someone trying to cause a ruckus about separation of Church & State.Sadly there are persons who would do just that.sad too is Christs birth celebration is so commercial." The Christmas Season
truly a 'retailers dream'we are now asked to replace Merry Christmas w/Happy Hoildays.

I am glad to know I can apply Baby Jesus to my cards again this year.Thanks!

There should be Christmas
Unpublished

There should be Christmas (secular and religious) and Hannukah stamps, forget the totally fabricated Kwanzaa holiday and ESPECIALLY the terrorist Muslim stamps. If the Muslims want a stamp, maybe there should be a Ramadan stamp, and when it doesn't sell (like the Kwanzaa stamp doesn't), discontinue it as a cost savings instead of a public donation to political correctness.

Many of the subjects chosen

Many of the subjects chosen to appear on U.S. stamps and postal stationery are suggested by the public. Each year, the Postal Service receives from the American public thousands of letters proposing stamp subjects. Every stamp suggestion meeting criteria is considered, regardless of who makes it or how it is presented.

AMEN, CORGIMOM! Also, why

AMEN, CORGIMOM! Also, why would any self-respecting American-loving citizen purchase a MUSLIM stamp? I am sure our military and those who lost loved ones in 9/11 absolutely LOVE that one! And I thought we were trying to fight against such anti-American stances? Lord help us. When I saw the sign at the post office last week, I nearly had a d*** fit and went off on somebody. WHAT A SLAP IN THE FACE TO THOSE FIGHTING THE MUSLIM EXTREMISTS ON BEHALF OF OUR COUNTRY! Whose bright idea was that anyway? I will buy DOUBLE Christmas stamps this year. People need to get together and protest this new "option"! And from my understanding, the individual who designed the stamp has a questionable background. A MUSLIM HOLIDAY STAMP. God Help us ALL! Perhaps all the funds generated from the sale of the Muslim stamp should go directly to provide our servicemen with extra necessities while they are stationed in Kuwait and Iraq!
