Day 697: The Christmas Jar

9706af1af81262b359949667862e6e04I know it’s almost Easter, not Christmas, but hey, better late than never.

Even though this idea has apparently been around for years, it’s the first time I’ve seen it. And of course now I want to do it!

And there are still eight months left before Christmas! 🙂

Check it out:

A Christmas Jar or Holiday Money Jar is a wonderful tradition to help spread the holiday spirit and encourage random acts of kindness. Consider starting a new family tradition this year, pass on the spirit of the holiday and give a money jar anonymously to someone who could really use one.

If you are looking for ways to create holiday memories with your children and a tradition that can be carry on for many years, read more about the Christmas Jar, Anonymous Holiday Money Jar or if you want to be politically correct, the Ramahanukwanzmas Jar.

The Christmas Jar tradition started in 2005 by author Jason F. Wright with his family. He went on to publish his family’s idea in the book Christmas Jars which became a New York Times Best Selling Book.

P.S. I know everyone and their third cousin is making “Happy” videos these days, but this one’s my favourite so far. Enjoy!
