The Christmas Spider Legend

Leave a comment

Long ago on Christmas Eve, a mother prepared for a visit from Christ.
She cleaned, scrubbed, and decorated the tree.
When all was quiet, the spiders who’d been swept away, crept to see the tree.
They crawled on every branch, admiring each ornament.
Alas, when they finished climbing, the tree was draped in cobwebs!

Christ smiled when he saw the happy spiders,
but he knew the mother would be heartbroken over the shrouded tree.
So, he turned the webs into silver and gold, and the tree was even more beautiful.
