"A Christmas Jar for Santa-A Christmas Jars Story" begins with a few facts from the life of a man who was in the Korean War, came home and married his sweetheart, Pauline. They wanted children, but that wish wasn't to be fulfilled. The couple found many other activities to fill their lives with joy and happiness and one year Pauline talked her husband into being Santa Claus for the church. The man who had always been Santa for the children at church was sick that year, so when the 60-year-old retiree took on the job, he didn't have an idea that it would be for the next twenty years, at least.
What this couple accomplished as Santa and Santa's helper and what was given in return is a beautiful story of the Christmas spirit of giving and also receiving with love the joys and the meaning of the holiday. It's a story to think about and a project to give thought to taking on each holiday for ourselves.
A Christmas Jar for Santa, by Jason F. Wright, is a short, short story-only nine or ten pages long. I had planned on reviewing a book length Christmas story, but this one . . . this one couldn’t and wouldn’t allow me to ignore it. It left a lasting impression on me as I’m sure it will on you, too when you read it.
There are at least four more Christmas Jar stories, and I can’t wait to read them all.
Merry, Merry Christmas in July!
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!
I do enjoy a good Christmas story at the holidays and this one didn't disappoint me. It's one I will be passing on to family and friends to share with them at the holidays.
In the end, it's a great reminder that the holidays really are for making a difference for someone. What a great reminder of the true spirit of the holiday.
You can tell this story is personal and comes from the heart. Thank you so much for sharing, not only with others but with us too.
