Apartment 20 – Spidery Christmas

Lost Christmas Tree walked down the hallway in the Christmas Building. He still had to find the apartment he is supposed to spend Christmas at. He saw the door to Apartment 20. He knocked on the door.

Lost Christmas Tree stood at the door for about ten minutes. Nobody answered. He saw the building manager come through the front door of the Christmas Building.

“Hi,” said Lost Christmas Tree.

“Oh hello,” said the building manager. “Are you still looking for the apartment you are supposed to spend Christmas at?”

“Yes,” said Lost Christmas Tree. “I was hoping Apartment 20 would be it.”

“That apartment is empty,” said the building manager, coming over to unlock the door. “However, I should air it out.”

Lost Christmas Tree watched the building manager open the blinds on the window. He also opened the window up a little bit.

“I see a spider in the window,” said Lost Christmas Tree.

“Yes,” said the building manager. “I see it too.”

The building manager was going to swat at it with a newspaper he rolled up that he found on the floor.

“Please don’t hit me,” cried the spider.

The building manager put the newspaper down.

“So do you live in this apartment?” Lost Christmas Tree asked the spider.

“Sort of,” said the spider. “My name is Sammy Spider. I thought this apartment would be a good place for me to spend the winter.”

“I don’t see anything wrong with that,” said the building manager. “This apartment is empty until spring.”

“Were you waiting for a Christmas tree delivery?” asked Lost Christmas Tree.

“No,” said Sammy Spider. “I don’t need a Christmas tree. I have my web. That is all I need.”

“Well,” waved Lost Christmas Tree. “I still have to find out which apartment I am supposed to spend Christmas at.”

“I wish you luck,” said Sammy Spider.

“Merry Christmas,” said the building manager.

“Merry Christmas to you both,” said Lost Christmas Tree, walking down the hallway.


Moral of this Story:

  • Spiders don’t need a lot to survive.
  • Example: Sammy Spider just needed his spider web to survive.
