One December, a mother was busily cleaning the house for
Christmas. She swept every corner of every room
completely clean, for she wanted everything bright and
shiny in time for Christmas Day.
The spiders fled upstairs to the attic to escape the broom, for they knew
she was far too busy to follow them up there.
On Christmas Eve, as soon as the house became quiet, the
spiders slowly crept down for a peek. They scuttled into
the living room and oh what a sight they saw!
A beautiful Christmas Tree! In their excitement they
scurried up the trunk and out along each branch. They
were filled with happiness as they climbed among its
Alas, by the time they had finished climbing, the tree
was completely covered with dusty gray spiders' webs.
Midnight came, and Santa Claus came with the gifts for
the children. When he saw the tree, he smiled to see how
happy the spiders were, but he knew how heartbroken the
mother would be if she saw the tree covered with dusty
webs. So he turned the gray spiders' webs to silver and

even more beautiful than before.

My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at
Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a
little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the
great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some
hidden part in all of us that screams out, (I BELIEVE IN MORE THAN WHAT I SEE AROUND ME.) You see, somewhere deep down inside we all
believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of
us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is
in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of
Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.
The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.
The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
