I had to laugh at Danielle's story about the Madonna Christmas stamps.
I had my own "Madonna Moment" last week when Big Brother was confused about my use of the term. I had to clarify: "The BLESSED MOTHER! Not the rock singer!"
As for the stamps, I ordered mine from the Post Office over the internet, since last year I had to go to 3 different post offices to get the "religious" Christmas stamps. The postal clerks were pretty surprised that I'd rather leave with nothing than take Frosty the Snowman in place of the Holy Family. This year, with the price of gas as high as it is, I paid the $1.00 handling fee to be sure to get the stamps I wanted.
Since I collect stamps, I've been ordering them dirtectly each year from the post office, as well. It ensures that you get what you want as well as giving you options that are just not available...ever...anywhere but online.
We always used religious Christmas stamps, I amazed they can't be found in most post offices, surely they must outsell the "Kwanza" stamps? Anyway I hope they aren't phasing them out, then again I can already hear the shrieks of the secularists "SEPERATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, THE FEDERAL POST OFFICE CAN'T HAVE STAMPS THAT ARE TRYING TO FORCE RELIGION ON US!"
Great blog by the way!
