The traditional Christmas colors are Red and Green. But on most Christmas trees’ the colors appear to be red and yellow, as in the colors of the Chinese flag. That’s because most ornaments purchased in the U.S. have that ubiquitous label on them – made in China. These generic looking balls, stars and snowflakes are sold at every big box store and drug store in the country and they cost the American economy jobs.

Americans can take Christmas back by buying American made Christmas ornaments like the hugely popular Weeping Santa art and collectibles. Featuring Santa holding a new-born baby Jesus, these pieces combine the modern aspects of Christmas with the reason we celebrate the holiday and is 100% American made.

The Weeping Santa Collection can be found at The Made in America Store in Elma or online at The Made in America store also features three different prints including the 8x10 tears of honor print featuring the American flag. This year, decorate your house and tree in the colors of the season, but know that it’s Red, White and Blue – buy American, give American and create American jobs.

Remember, if every one of us spent an additional $3.33 on American-made goods, we’d create 10,000 jobs. It’s that easy.

100% American Made is a blog dedicated to the growing “Buy American” movement. Each week we’ll highlight common products that are made by the sparkplug of the American economy - the American worker.
