Teri’s Review:

I personally pre-screened and truly enjoyed this film! If you are a homeschool teen, I’m sure you will like it too. CHRISTMAS JARS is actually a great family-friendly movie for all ages. It’s a well-produced and well-acted drama with a healthy dose of comedy, romance, and touching moments. Plus it has a wonderful message for the Thanksgiving and Christmas season about generosity and kindness.

In some ways, CHRISTMAS JARS reminds me of one of my favorite holiday movies, It’s a Wonderful Life. CHRISTMAS JARS is not an overtly religious movie, but it focuses on the virtue of charity, while implying how God can take a bad situation and turn it into something good.

The opening sequence was interesting to watch as about 20 years went by in the first five minutes. The rest of the movie picks up where those events left off and eventually comes full circle back to the beginning.

CHRISTMAS JARS is a heartwarming story that will help set the tone for the season of giving, and make you want to start your own Christmas jar tradition.
