Christmas Jar or Holiday Money Jar is a great new 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.

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 and a new Christmas Classic and Penny's Christmas Miracle Jar as a version for kids.

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