Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright

Published in 2005. 122 pages.

My December reading goals were woefully over-enthusiastic, and just today I finally read Christmas Jars, which was sent to me by the publisher for review. I sincerely wish I'd gotten to it sooner.

This short novel is a touching reminder of the joy of family and the spirit of Christmas. Curled up under a blanket my mother recently made for me, I had tears rolling down my face as I finished the book. It was well worth the read - even (or maybe especially) a week past the Christmas hoopla, since the message of loving our fellow beings is not one just for Christmas.

The story suggests a great Christmas tradition, but it really is one that starts right after Christmas. So if you're looking for a way to make Christmas more meaningful this coming December, take a look at Christmas Jars now. You can also check out the book website and the author's blog.



  1. OH, I'm so glad you enjoyed this as much as I did. I gave it to one of my daughters for Christmas. She always keeps a jar filled with change, so now she can start a new tradition with it. :)

  2. It sounds great I'll have to get it. Glad you enjoyed it so much.

  3. Well hey there! I'm so glad you enjoyed Christmas Jars. It sure has been fun seeing the tradition take off. Happy New year!
