Christmas Countdown: Ornament #3

The Third Ornament of Christmas:
My Christmas Spider


One of my weird little fascinations is spiders. They are awesome - I have always admired their craftsmanship, patience and skill. They are truly one of nature's most amazing creatures. Imagine my excitement when I found this lovely little Christmas Spider ornament in the clearance section one after-holiday outing many years ago. Isn't he awesome? :D

I know what you're thinking. Spiders have 8 legs and this guy only has 6. I know, it's always bugged me too (pardon the pun). But since he has the anatomically correct two-segmented body, I live with it. After all, what says Merry Christmas like a shiny red and green spider?

Oh good lord, woman! Only YOU would put a SPIDER on their Christmas tree!
I know that you are fascinated with spiders, but seriously?! ;)

I guess since it's red & green, it is kind of festive. But. It's still a SPIDER.

luv u!
