Book Review: A Christmas Jar For Santa - A Christmas Jars Story

"Christmas Jars", a New York Times Bestselling novella by Jason Wright, first became a phenomenon during the 2005 holiday season. Readers across America reacted to the message of daily giving and sacrifice by creating their own Christmas Jars.

Today, thousands of glass jars rest on kitchen counter tops, slowly collecting the spare change generated each and every day. On Christmas Eve, each jar, now overflowing with both money and goodwill, will anonymously find a new home. In turn, the grateful recipients will put the money to good use in their lives and begin their own jar. Thus hearts and lives are changed and the cycle continues.

"A Christmas Jar For Santa" follows in the tradition and spirit of Christmas Jars.

A Very Special Santa Claus
This short story begins with some background information about a man who would become a popular and beloved Santa Claus. He served in the Korean War and came home to marry Pauline. They wanted to have children of their own, but that wasn't to be. After working in a factory for many years, he retired and began his new job as a Christmas Santa Claus.

It started when Jake Carnahan, the church Santa took ill.  The demand for his services grew over the years. He and Pauline loved the children. They went to churches, hospitals, shopping malls and many other places...always delivering presents and spreading the joy of Christmas. His job as Santa Claus occupied most of his time for over 20 years.

When Pauline died of cancer, he was able to carry on his Santa Claus tradition with the help of some friends. Last Christmas, Santa came home from his last Christmas event of the season. He saw a plate of cookies, a glass of milk and a Christmas jar on his kitchen table. This was not an ordinary Christmas jar full of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. This jar was filled with some very special silver-colored wooden coins that touched Santa's heart in a special way. 

This story will take you about 15 minutes to read and it's message will bless you throughout the Christmas season. Santa does not have the easiest job in the world, but it is surely the most rewarding. This book was a delight to read. Highly recommended for the entire family!
