Decorations on the web!

In Ukraine, they tell a story of a poor widow and her children, who had a Christmas tree, but no money to buy decorations.

Ratvaark talks to us, and in the background Ofelia, Micro and Nano look at a plain Christmas tree in a pot.

Feeling a bit sad, they all went to bed.

But during the night, a spider came and wove a magic web all over the tree…

And in the morning, the webs had turned into threads of pure silver and gold! So the family were never poor again. And to this day, people in Ukraine include spider web decorations on their trees.
