A long time ago in Germany, a mother was busily cleaning
for Christmas. The spiders fled to the attic to escape the
broom. When the house became quiet the spiders slowly crept
downstairs for a peek.
Oh what a beautiful tree!
In their excitement they scurried
up the trunk and out along each branch. They were filled
with happiness as they climbed amongst the glittering beauty.
But alas! By the time they were
through climbing, the tree was completely shrouded in their
dusty grey spider webs.
When Santa Claus came with the
gifts for the children and saw the tree covered with spider
webs, he smiled as he saw how happy the spiders were, but
knew how heartbroken the mother would be if
she saw the tree covered with the dusty webs.
So he turned the webs to silver
and gold. The tree sparkled and shimmered and was even more
beautiful than before.
That's why we have tinsel on
our tree and every tree should have a Christmas spider in
it's branches !
