The Christmas Spider

In some parts of Europe, decorative spiders and spider webs can be found on the Christmas tree, as a symbol of good luck. In essence, spiders have a lot of good things going for them. Unlike fleas, mosquitoes, ticks and mites, they don’t carry diseases and the death rate from their bites is vastly overrated, as a spider bite rarely causes death. On the other, the biggest killer in the animal kingdom may be the meager, six-legged bee.

So maybe it is time to appreciate the spider, especially since their webs trap large number of insects.

In Central and Eastern Europe, ornaments like this spider and web may be found hanging from a Christmas evergreen
