In the Ukraine it’s considered good luck if a spider appears on your Christmas tree (yalynka/иалинка).This stems from a folk tale about an old woman too poor to afford ornaments, the spiders heard her prayers on Christmas Eve and decorated the tree overnight with beautiful webs, which glittered like tinsel in the morning sun.
