Alaskan snowflake featured on stamp
As part of the secular war on Christmas, our minions at the US Postal Service will issue 100% Jesus, Mary, and Joseph* free stamps for the holiday season. The stamps will feature photographs of four completely secular snowflakes including this beauty from Fairbanks.

The photographs are the work of Kenneth Libbrecht, a physicist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Libbrecht is the author three gorgeous books about snowflakes.

* As usual, they will aso be issuing a set of Christian-themed stamps as well. Also as usual, the stamps will feature Mary and baby Jesus, but Joseph will be left out in the cold, with the snowflakes. And, just to make the baby Bill O'Reilly cry, they will water down the Christianness of this most Christian time of the year by offering Kwanza, Eid, and Hanukkah stamps.
