The Thanksgiving feast and Black Friday are in the past. My email has been bombarded today with Cyber Monday offers. I will peruse a few at lunch. I will be doing my shopping for Christmas over the next few weeks, and I plan on making it an All American Christmas. Thankfully I am not alone in this endeavor. Over the last few weeks I have come across a lot of Buy American Christmas articles. There was one in the L.A Times. Senator Rick Santorum and I are in agreement that we should try to Buy American for Christmas. So know that you will be in good company this season if you decide to make sure that more of the presents you give this season will be two-fers. A holiday gift to the recipient of the gift and a gift of employment to the member of our extended American family who made the gift.
The first gift in my Top Ten American Holiday gifts this year is truly a work of art. It’s the Cutthroat watch made by the Bozeman Watch Company in Bozeman Montana. This beautiful watch will become a treasure to the recipient.
