A Christmas Story for you

It is Christmas Eve and the weather is unbelievably hot, humid and sunny. Preparations are underway for tomorrow…parcels to wrap, fudge to make, fruit to check, maybe a little cooking to do when the kitchen is not full of sunshine.

Happy Christmas to you all in the blogosphere.


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 !

      I found this Xmas Spider and the story amongst my Mum’s stuff after she died. I love the story too – I like spiders and tolerate some cobwebs in the house – up to a point!
