The Legend of the Christmas Spider
"A long time ago in Germany, a mother was cleaning for Christmas. Spiders fled up to the attic to escape the broom. On Christmas Eve, the spiders slowly came back down for a peek and exclaimed, "Oh, what a beautiful tree!"
In excitement, they scurried up and along each branch, filled with happiness as they climbed amongst the glittering beauty. But alas! By the time they were done, the tree was shrouded in their dusty grey web.
When Santa arrived with gifts for the children and saw the tree covered with spider webs, he smiled because he saw how happy the spiders were, but knew how heartbroken the mother would be if she saw. So he turned the webs into strands of silver, and the tree was even more beautiful than before."
