The Story of The Little Christmas Spider. Video Tutorial On How To Make A Spider.
This is the story of the little Christmas spider.
The story of the Christmas spider seems to have come from Germany. I have read two versions of the story. One that Weihanchtsmann, known as Father Christmas and the other that the Christ Child helped out the little spiders. I have put both stories on here and a Youtube tutorial on how to make a Christmas spider.
I tried to find the prettiest spider I could find for this picture, but that's not easy. Spiders just aren't pretty. Their webs are beautiful.
Mama Spider and Her Babies.
Alabama was the first state to recognize Christmas as an official holiday. This tradition started in 1836.
I took a picture of this spider in our yard. She took care of the babies just like any mother should. Our kids didn't like walking by her on the walk, but I made sure they left her alone. I don't like killing spiders because I know they're good around the garden. They eat insects that we don't need like mosquitoes.
Our kids are grown-ups, but they will scream and run off if they see a spider. Why? All you have to do is step on them. My husband and I don't do that. If I find them in the house I put them outside. Now if I lived in the south where there are poison spiders I may feel different about that.
We had huge spiders on the lake. They would hatch under our dock. We called them dock spiders. I could look out the window and see them sunning themselves on the dock they were that big.
One time we had a sunrise service at our cottage with our church. One man walked in the cottage and saw this huge spider hanging in the window and out he went. He said he had never seen a spider that big before.
Poland decorates their Christmas with spiders and spider webs. They believe spiders and webs stand for goodness and prosperity.
