Not one, but two (2) families find snakes in their Christmas trees! Snakes claim they were just looking for an apple to give as a Christmas present!
Two families, one living in North Carolina and the other from Idaho, were in for a fright when they spotted snakes slithering through the branches of their newly decorated Christmas trees.
The Baine family, of Zebulon, North Carolina, got a big surprise when their daughter went to turn off the Christmas tree lights and saw a small corn snake hanging from a tree limb.Mrs. Baine grabbed her iPhone and begin filming as her husband sent the children off to bed and grabbed a sack to capture the serpent who had made his home within the branches of the tree. The Baine family has posted the video on YouTube where it is receiving thousands of views.
After catching the little fellow the kids were so enamored with him they decided to keep it and named him Tinsel, since he resembled the holiday decoration that adorns Christmas trees.The slithery start to the 2011 holiday season stretched across the country to Meridian, Idaho, where another family called the fire department after finding a snake in their recently purchased tree.Josh Schmidtz said, "I thought our daughter put a plastic snake in the tree because I don't like them. When I saw it was real, I panicked."Crickett Rudd, Horticulturist at the FarWest Landscape and Garden in Boise, said, "that sometimes on rare occasions little critters and animals can get inside the wrapped Christmas trees, during the delivery process to try to stay warm."Rudd said it was possible the snake had traveled quite a distance before arriving at the Schmidtz home. To avoid finding a surprise in your holiday evergreen this Christmas, Rudd recommends you take a broom and thoroughly sweep the tree to shake loose any live creatures that might be hiding in the branches.Larae Schmidtz said that next year they would go over every inch of the tree before they move it inside.
That is one of the reason we just use our fake Christmas tree. That way you only have to worry about rubber or cartoon snakes fooling with it.
Thankfully, we only have to deal with cats in our tree.
Somebody needs to call Samuel L Jackson to fix this problem!

I can understand why this post was popular. It was the same technique that M used for our Party and Halloween night. I had so many emails and comments about this, it was flattering for M to say the least. It was simple, easy and looked
Last night, I got a blast from Autumn's past. It was pumpkin Heaven in a cup. I am talking about none other than Sonic's Pumpkin Pie Milkshake!
It was the best pumpkin treat I have ever had (even better than my cheesecake). I highly recommend all my fellow Halloween Heads and Pumpkin Purveyors get down to your nearest Sonic and try this NOW! You won't be sorry.
The stocking all hung with greatest of care.
In hopes that fat loot would soon be there!
We had a good laugh about the size of the stockings. We were just trying to show that the better the cat, the bigger the presents. Lilly refused to come around when we hung them. I wonder where she was?
