Holiday traditions are one of my favorite things about this time of year. When I spent my 1st Christmas with Mike it was interesting to learn about his family traditions. One favorite tradition I learned from him was the Legend of the Christmas Spider.
Legend of the Christmas Spider
There are a few different stories out there, but this is the one I like the most:
If you’ve ever gazed at the beautiful tinsel sparkling on your Christmas Tree and wondered who came up with idea of decorating the tree in this way, wonder no longer. According to German legend, it signifies a Christmas miracle from many years ago.
