Although she banished all the spiders to the attic, the littlest spider sneaked down late at night to see the tree and the decorations. The others followed and climbed the tree to look at the ornaments. When Santa arrived, he found the tree full of their webs. Knowing how hard the mother had worked, he touched the webs and changed them into sparkling, silver tinsel.
