"We can guarantee - you haven't seen anything like this,"


A Lithuanian airport is getting in the holiday spirit with a #Christmas tree made entirely of confiscated items that surely landed some passengers on Santa's naughty list this year.

Vilnius Airport transformed a "Bah! Humbug" moment into a festive display of knives, toy guns, bullet cases and corkscrews – all taken from passengers' carry-on luggage during security screenings over the year.

"We can guarantee - you haven't seen anything like this," Lithuanian Airports shared on #LinkedIn Monday. "With #knives, #scissors, #lighters, #blades and all other sorts of #dangerousgoods on it - this Christmas tree has it all."

But, the Christmas tree serves as more than just #holiday decoration. Lithuanian Airports said it's a friendly reminder on "the importance of aviation security."

"The Aviation security officers at Vilnius Airport opted for an unusual take on the Christmas classic, aiming to send an #educational message" the post said. "So if you don't want your personal, yet prohibited, belongings to land on our next year's Christmas tree - better check out the baggage requirements before you pack for your next #flight. #Safe travels!"
