The British might be taking Christianity out of Christmas to inanely appease the minority immigrant population, but not little young New Zealand.
Its the two fingered salute to radical Islam!!
Immigrants to our country have to learn and appreciate our customs and traditions - and they do too!
Traditional Christian scenes will remain on New Zealand stamps again this year, despite Britain moving away from religion for fear of offending some bearded Moslem.
NZ Post stamps have been well received in the past and last year's set of Three Wise Men were extremely popular, so they will continue the traditional way for Christmas issue stamps in the foreseeable future despite what immigrants are perceived to consider as appropriate.
Perhaps if immigrants had been treated with a bit more condideration and respect in the past, the British wouldn't find themselves in a conscience bind.
This year thousands of New Zealand children submitted stamp designs in a contest - ten of which were chosen for use.Entries depicted traditional designs and others were more Kiwiana - such as Kiwifruit wearing a Santa hat. No PC for our Kiwi kids! The 2007 Christmas issue will no doubt be along similar lines to 2006.
A Merry Christmas from New Zealand!
