In Christmases past, my wife was a person who loved to send Christmas cards. She would spend hours shopping for just the right cards. After she passed on, I would buy one box of new cards and the rest would be from her big box of leftover cards from years before.

This year I was in a big-box store and saw nice looking cards for one-fourth of the price I would normally pay — they came home with me. As I was sitting at the desk filling them out, I turned one over, and what to my wondrous eyes should appear but three little words saying, "Made in China." It just didn't seem right, so the cards went in the round box under my desk.

And my friends will receive cards reading "Merry Christmas to all" and "Made in the USA."

    There are plenty of people who can't even afford those cheap cards, more or less those "made in USA" cards that cost four times more. Although I agree with your sentiments about buying American made products it still puzzles me why anyone would go to Walmart and buy US made cards when that company depends on China and other third world countries to supposedly use very young children to manufacture many of the cheap goods they sell.

    Sounds good, but just make sure it also says made with non union labor or you are supporting the same kind of system that workers in China have.
