Vilnius Airport Puts A Christmas Tree Made Of Confiscated Items To Highlight The Importance Of Aviation Security

Here at Lithuanian Airports, we are certain that you have seen many different Christmas trees: natural, modern, innovative, and simply quirky. However, we can guarantee – you’ve never seen anything like this one.

With the winter travel season well underway, the Aviation security officers at Vilnius Airport opted for an unusual take on the classic Christmas tree, aiming to send an educational message on the importance of aviation security. 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.

Knives, scissors, lighters, blades, and all sorts of other dangerous goods – this Christmas tree has them all. So if you don’t want your personal, yet prohibited, belonging to land on our next year’s Christmas tree – better check out the baggage requirements before you pack for your next flight.

I think these Christmas trees are made from purchased scissors to prove a point (no pun intended). They all look the same and have green handles. Also, I've had scissors in my backpack and forgot about them - a few times. So yes, I've had to hand them over at TSA. I'm an artist and scissors are very useful on a daily basis, so they're with me all the time... Now, my packing list includes items to uNpAcK before I get started.
