Review: Christmas Jars



Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright

This is another one of those tiny feel-good Christmas-y books, so I thought I'd give it a try.

For such a small novel (with, admittedly, writing that doesn't exactly fly off the page), this packs in several stories lines that tie up nicely at the end. At the heart of the tale is the story of a family that collects change throughout the year (in a jar, natch) and then leaves it with someone who appears to really need it for the holidays.

A warm and fuzzy tale for folks still needing the Christmas spirit!

Christmas Jars touched my heart. I loved it and couldn't put it down until the last page. Wow! This book could change the world! What if everyone started a Christmas Jar? If each jar held a hundred dollars in change, that means the gifts given by individuals would total more than all the other large philentropic organizations totaled together! What a powerful idea! And the great feeling each person or family received as they gave to someone in need cannot be measured. The world would feel like a better place for that short period of time for both the giver and the receiver. That is really incredible.
