THE LEGEND OF THE CHRISTMAS SPIDER

 

LONG AGO ON CHRISTMAS EVE AN OLD WOMAN WENT TO BED MISERABLE AS SHE WAS VERY POOR AND COULDN’T AFFORD DECORATIONS FOR HER TREE. EARLIER IN THE DAY SHE HAD SHOWN MERCY TO A SPIDER IN HER HOUSE AND LET IT BE INSTEAD OF SQUASHING IT. IN GRATITUDE THE SPIDER WOVE A MAGNIFICENT WEB ALL OVER HER TREE. ST. NICHOLAS SAW WHAT A MESS IT WAS AND TURNED THE WEB INTO SILVER, AND IT IS FROM THIS LEGEND THAT WE GET TINSEL. MADE OF IMITATION RHODIUM OVER BRASS IN SCOTLAND BY CARRIE FERTIG. MAY IT REMIND YOU OF WHAT THIS SEASON IS ABOUT.
