CHRISTMAS JARS is a one-night movie event that provides hope to all as we enter this special season. In theaters Monday, November 4 only, CHRISTMAS JARS is a heartfelt reminder that kindness truly is contagious.





In theaters on Monday, Nov. 4, ONE NIGHT ONLY.


A few years ago in December, a friend of mine posted online about how she missed having a Christmas Tree and money to purchase presents for herself and her children one year. My children and I happened to have a small, about 2-3 foot artificial tree in the upstairs closet in our house. I don't remember how it got there. I just knew that we didn't need it. I almost always have extra items and gift laying around the house that we hardly use because of being a blogger/reviewer. So we usually give them to friends and family close to us.

So I went around the house gathering items for my friend, her daughter, and for her son. I put them into Christmas gift bags with tissue paper, but with no names on the bags. As I figured once they peaked inside, they would know who they were for! Then my girls and I put those items into my truck and went to a local store where we purchase blue Christmas tree ornaments, and some others, to put on the tree along with a star and a few boxes of lights. I waited until that afternoon when I knew that she wouldn't be home, and my children and I went and left all of these items on their front porch, along with the tree!

Later that afternoon, she posted on her facebook page about coming home to the tree, ornaments and presents and how grateful her and her family were to have people around them that did this for them! I told my children and we all felt like Santa's Elves that afternoon when we left those gifts on their doorstep that year. The Christmas Jars movie reminded me of all of the things that I have done to help others around the holidays. It really is a GOOD movie!

My Review:
"Christmas Jars" is a beautiful, heart-warming story about a girl, her mother, and the people who began the first Christmas Jar! I don't want to give the story away, other than to say that this is a great movie to share with the whole family, young and old. Yes, there's a little romance in it, but only one kiss, at the end! If you love stories about giving, generosity, miracles, and kindness, then go see the "Christmas Jars" on November 4th in a theater near you! You'll thank me! It's really worth going to the theater to watch! It's way better than any Hallmark or Lifetime movie I've seen!

You can also download a Discussion Guide if you plan to see this movie with friends, family, or your church group!
