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.
