Love this already a Xmas fan but now i know about the tinsel myths and legends, it makes it so fascinating! This was great myths and legends story and i thought it was very entertaining and rather funny about how curious spiders can be - especially young ones!
Ill try to keep this story in mind when I next see a spider as I have a fear of them!
