The Legend Of The Christmas Spider



Long Ago In Germany, A Mother Prepared For Christmas Eve
She Cleaned And Scrubbed Her Home
She Chased The Spiders From The Living Room With Her Broom
The Spiders Fled To The Attic And Listened To The Excitement
As The Christmas Tree Was Brought In And Decorated

When All Was Quiet Again
The Little Spiders Crept Back Downstairs To See The Beautiful Tree
They Were Filled With Happiness As They Crawled Along Every Branch
They Admired The Glittering Beauty Of Each Ornament

But Alas
By The Time They Had Finished Climbing Through The Tree
It Was Completely Draped With Their Dusty, Gray Cobwebs
When The Christ Child Came
He Smiled As He Looked Upon The Happy Little Spiders

However

He Knew The Mother Would Be Heartbroken
When She Saw The Shrouded Tree
So He Reached Out And Touched The Webs
He Blessed Them And Turned Them Into Silver And Gold
Now The Christmas Tree Sparkled And Shimmered
It Was Even More Beautiful Than Before
Thus The Custom To Have Tinsel Of Silver, Gold And A Spider Ornament
Amongst The Other Decorations On The Christmas Tree Was Born
