Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and...gingerbread house?

Twitter user @RennaW posted the above photo with the caption: "Don't forget those three American holidays: Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and.....gingerbread house."

That's the message she took from a U.S. Postal Service mailer she received for holiday stamps, calling attention to the gingerbread house stamp featured instead of a more traditional Christmas one.

The USPS does offer Christmas-themed stamps with religious themes.

Still, reactions to the gingerbread stamp in the ad were swift and strident:

The U.S. Postal Service apparently took notice and got into the Twitter fray as well:
