Forget ornaments.

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 dangerous goods 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!”
