ON Yule eve ,a long time ago ,a gentle mother was busily cleaning the house for the most wonderful day of the year...Yule day,the day on which the little God child came to bless  the house.Not a speck of dust was left.Even the spiders had been banished from their cozy corner on the ceiling.They had fled to the farthest corner of the attic.The Yule tree was beautifully decorated.The poor spiders were frantic ,for they could not see the tree,nor be present for the little God child's visit.Then the oldest and wisest spider suggested that perhaps they could wait until everyone went to bed and then get a closer look.When the house was dark and silent the spiders crept out of their hiding place.When they neared the Yule tree,they were delighted with the beauty of it.The spiders crept all over the tree up ans down,over the branches and twigs and saw everyone of the pretty things.The spiders loved the Yule tree .All night long they danced in the branches, leaving them covered with spider webs.In the morning when the little God child  came  to bless the house , he was  dismayed ! H e loved  the  little spiders for they were Goddess's creatures,but he knew  the mother ,who had worked  so hard to  make everything  perfect , would not  be pleased  when  she saw  what  the spiders had done .With love in his heart  and a smile on his lips.The  little God  child reached out  and gently touched the spider webs . The spider webs started to sparkle and shine.They had all turned into sparkling ,shimmering silver and gold.According to legend,ever since this happened ,people have hung tinsel on their Yule trees .It also has become a custom to include a spider among the decorations on the Yule tree .Celtic Women's spirituality-Eden McCoy-

this is such a nice story Miyoko. And I love Edain McCoy, she's one of my most favorite authors on Celtic Spirituality. I love the story. Now, from now on, I'm going to include a spider on my Yule tree. Thank you Miyoko :)
