the silver spider
a folk tale from old germany in the legend of the silver spider it is told that while a family was too poor to decorate their christmas tree. at night while everyone was sleeping a grey spider crept down from the attic and spun a beautiful silvery web over the christmas tree so when the family came downstairs for christmas morning the tree was beautifully decorated. this is why some people have the tradition of putting silver tinsel on their trees.
we have animals who eat whatever they see so we don't put tinsel on our tree, but we the last ornament we put on is the silver spider
