In the Ukraine, if you find a spider web in the house on Christmas morning, it is believed to be a harbinger of good luck! There once lived a woman so poor, says a Ukrainian folk tale, that she could not afford Christmas decorations for her family. One Christmas morning, she awoke to find that spiders had trimmed her children’s tree with their webs. When the morning sun shone on them, the webs turned to silver and gold. An artificial spider and web are often included in the decorations on Ukrainian Christmas trees.

This makes me feel better and wonder why my mother would always make us clean the house really well and get read of the cobwebs Christmas Eve before we had the family over for Christmas.

 

Also this makes me wonder if this is where we get the idea to throw tensile on the tree. Does anyone else hate that stuff as much as me?  Yes it looks pretty but I always find that stuff all over the house for months to come.

 

However you have decorated your tree I am hoping you are setting back and enjoying it.
