There’s nothing like a passive-aggressive message to kick off the holidays, don’t you think?
An airport in Lithuania is celebrating the holidays with a very unique display.
The airport created a Christmas tree made up entirely of items that security personnel had to confiscate from passengers.
Quick question, however.
Is it the best idea to put weapons on display in an airport — you know, the place that becomes 10 times more stressful during holiday travel?
We’re going to go with “no.”
Vilnius International Airport in Vilnius, Lithuania, shared the image on LinkedIn.
It explained that the tree was made exclusively with prohibited items taken from passengers’ carry-on luggage during security screening.
Those items included knives, scissors, blades, mock guns, bullet cases and lighters, among other dangerous objects.
It’s absolutely incredible to see how many people think it’s acceptable to travel with scissors.
The airport said it had shared photos of the quirky tree to “send an educational message [about] the importance of aviation security.”
“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,” the airport wrote.
