Although I never grew up decorating Christmas trees, there’s nothing like gazing upon a well-decorated one to put me in the Holiday spirit.
Every time I walk through a Target or Michael’s I look at all the ornaments and start planning an imaginary tree in my head. How would I decorate it? Would I go all avant-garde and make a black and white tree with white decorations? Or would I go classic and cut down my own to bring it inside and do it up in red and gold?
Or would I just put a highly venomous snake on it, just for kicks?
That’s what happened to Cheryl, a woman from Frankston, Australia, who found a slithering surprise in her Christmas tree.
The photo was posted by Barry Goldsmith on his Snake Catcher Victoria Australia Facebook Page.
In an interview with Mashable, Goldsmith said it was the first time he’s ever seen a snake in a Christmas tree and a Tiger Snake, no less.
The snake catcher went on to say that people panic when they see a snake and even try to kill it by cutting their heads off, which is super dangerous:
“I’m all about stopping people from trying to hurt themselves. Usually people cut the head off the snake, and don’t realise it that its head is actually still alive for about 15 minutes … lots of people get bitten while trying to pick up the severed head of the snake.”
You read that right, these things can live for 15 minutes after getting their heads cut off. People on Goldsmith’s FB page were shocked at the find.
The snake was unharmed and successfully transported out of the woman’s home. Looks like folks in Australia who celebrate Christmas with real trees have more to worry about than just bugs. (h/t mashable)

If you can believe it, 2016 is nearly over and there’s only a few more holidays before we start what will hopefully be a slightly more calm year. And with Halloween just around the corner, it might seem odd to you that a certain Christmas decoration is already flying off the shelve.Nothing says Christmas like a vulva.

What is it? Well, as we all know, nothing says Christmas like a vulva. That’s why one genius on Etsy has decided to start selling Christmas tree decorations shaped like vaginas.
Feltmelons is selling the baubles, which come in a wide variety of vibrant colors. And yes, they’re all handcrafted with love.
And yes, they come complete with a jingling Christmas clitoris. There are also different sizes available if you don’t think that having a massive vagina on your tree is appropriate.
Believe it or not, they’ve been selling hundreds of these things from as early as August. And customers are very satisfied with their purchases. One customer even went as far as to call them “vagtastic.”
If you want to oblige, you can find them here.
