Holiday season, time to buy stamps, and with it to take spiritual inventory. How much religiosity is the right amount for your own mail, where do you stand in the War on Christmas? Are you a fan of the baby Jesus? If so, you’ve got two classy Fine Art options!
If you’re whatever about Jesus, you can go secular with some Seasonal Signifiers for the Holiday Season.
Or you can simply vibe with the idea that it’s cold and snowy in many places this time of year, and share some illustrations from a beloved book for children featuring a child dressed in red.
Maybe you’ve got mild beef with Jesus, though.
John Lennon said his band was bigger than J.C., so this would be a good fit for your IMAGINE THERE’S NO HEAVEN cards!
OK, no offense, but never mind about Jesus for a minute, what about Saint Nick? Santa? Long has the jolly elf danced upon the line betwixt Church and State. Coca-Cola commissioned these Santa Claus illustrations long ago and employed them so successfully that they are now officially recognized Holiday Icons reproduced and disseminated by Your Government’s Post Office! Ho ho ho, Merry Coke-mas!
There is another Belief System that is not necessarily anti-religion.
The Star Trek entertainment franchise functions as a complete Life Philosophy. Live Long and Prosper! Merry Space-mas!
Philately is the Religion of Postage, so consider this stamp honoring Air Mail—while not specifically being an “airmail” stamp—as an appropriate way to honor the Postal Service in this season of sending greeting cards through the mail. Merry Post-mas!
Penultimately, though, what’s the point? All of our religious seasonal holidays are simply a distraction from the inevitable death of the Sun, as represented by this Total Solar Eclipse. Merry Death-mas.
Ultimately however, long before our Sun swells into a Red Star, consuming the Solar System in fire, we as a people will destroy ourselves. The End Times are now. We are lost in a Patriotic Spiral.
All our cards are going out with Hot Wheels stamps. Happy Merry.
