I chose to watch this movie after receiving a free copy of the DVD. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
“Christmas Jars” is a sweet story about an aspiring reporter who receives a Christmas jar filled with money when she’s having a rough time. She figures out who is giving away the jars and endears herself to the family. She not only finds out how they started giving away the jars, but she falls in love with the family. Now she has to choose between the family and her career. Is she willing to betray this family she’s grown to love?
I enjoyed this movie. It’s a good movie to watch especially this time of year. I liked the Maxwell family (the ones who give Christmas Jars). They’re good, well-meaning, down-to-earth people.
