Tinsel the Christmas Spider Cache Buddy Travel Tag
It is a trackable legend!
The legend of the Christmas Spider goes back generations, and may explain why some use tinsel on their trees.
There are a few known versions of this folktale. Here is one of our favorites:
A poor but hardworking widow once lived in a small hut with her children. One summer day, a pine cone fell on the earthen floor of the hut and took root. The widow's children cared for the tree, excited at the prospect of having a Christmas tree by winter. The tree grew, but when Christmas Eve arrived, they could not afford to decorate it. The children sadly went to bed and fell asleep. Early the next morning, they woke up and saw the tree covered with cobwebs. When they opened the windows, the first rays of sunlight touched the webs and turned them into gold and silver. The widow and her children were overjoyed. From then on, they never lived in poverty again.
Now the Christmas Spider is ready to decorate the geocaching world, one cache at a time!
