2016 hasn't been very kind to us all, but this woman might have just felt the full wrath of the year, because her Christmas tree tinsel literally turned into something straight out of a nightmare.
Barry Goldsmith, a snake catcher from Victoria, took to his business Facebook page to share a terrifying photo of what was found in a Frankston woman's Christmas tree.
Barry was called in quick smart, when the tinsel wasn't so glittering, but more slithering... because a tiger snake had found its way in and was wrapped around the tree.
This is NOT what you want to wake up to and is probably worse than getting coal for Christmas.
