Shocked and grateful for this act of kindness, Hope discovers that people all over her hometown of Columbus, Ohio, have been receiving Christmas Jars for years during times of need. The jars are always anonymous and always contain different amounts. In this heartwarming Christmas classic, Hope goes undercover to discover the secret behind the Christmas jars, putting into motion a series of events that will change her life, and her community, forever.
My family and I loved this movie! It is sweet and heartfelt. I especially loved Hope. Her story is sad, but I loved her attitude. She is quite the journalist. I felt her for when she had to choose between her story and the family. Tragedy strikes, but this movie (and book) shows how we can pull together ot help others. This is the perfect movie to get you in the Christmas spirit.
