Christmas at the Post Office?by A.Vasquez on 10/25/12
It's the busiest time of year for the U.S. Post Office as many are sending Christmas Cards and Gifts to loved ones across the country and around the world. Wouldn't it be nice to see signs that say Merry Christmas? Not much for Christmas decorations sadly, in most post office locations you will only find an ornament or two and maybe a "Holiday Evergreen" or "Winter Holiday" Stamp.
In a couple of recent USPS commercials you hear odd phrases like "Holiday Shopping List" or "Holiday Shipping." Like many other companies the post office has designed it's "Holiday" campaign to not offend anyone except Christians who make up 80% of all America.
You can however find Kwanzaa Stamps, Islamic Holiday Stamps and Hanukka Stamps as well. During a recent trip to the post office I asked the clerk, "Do you have any Christmas Stamps" she then handed me a stamp with a reindeer and a snowman on it. I then asked, "Do you have any stamps with the word Christmas on it?" She responded, "That's all I have." Upon further checking the USPS website you can buy 2 stamps that actually have the word Christmas on them and even a Christmas CD for purchase. So the Post Office hasn't completely removed Christmas.
