The Legend Of The Christmas Spider

Through the ages, there have been legends passed down explaining how things came to be. The Legend of the Christmas Spider is no exception. This book tells the story of how we might decorate our Christmas trees in this day and age. Though the origin of this folktale has been lost in time, it is very well known in Eastern Europe, especially Western Ukraine. In that part of the world, it is widely held as good luck to find a spider or a spiderweb on the Christmas tree, so it comes as no surprise to find spider-shaped ornaments during the holiday season. Some homes still use artificial spider webs and apply it to their Christmas tree as a tradition.
