Lithuanian airport erects Christmas Tree made from confiscated items

An airport in Lithuania has constructed a unique holiday decoration: A Christmas tree made entirely of banned items confiscated from travelers.

Photos posted on LinkedIn by the Vilnius Airport shows the "tree" to primarily consist of pairs of scissors but also include knives, lighters and other objects.

"With knives, scissors, lighters, blades and all other sorts of dangerous goods on it — this Christmas tree has it all. 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!" wrote Lithuanian Airports in the post.

A fake gun and brass knuckles makes up the base of the "tree," while the pointed star on top is made of several blades.

"Using items that are prohibited to carry in hand luggage and which were taken away from passengers during screening, the lads at the Aviation security unit of Lithuania's main airport created a truly unique educational masterpiece," it continued.
