Family Finds Snake in Christmas Tree

Did you see this story on the news recently (video)?   Luckily for us, the weather in Saint Louis is much to cold for this to happen here.

The biggest problem we have to deal with this time of the year is a Christmas mouse.  With all the goodies pack under the tree a mouse could make its home right there without anyone knowing it was there.   A mouse could easily get enough fresh water from the tree stand, nibble into a wrapped box of chocolates or into a cracker, cheese and sausage box from Pepperidge Farms and so on….

Now that I think about it, maybe that is where the tradition of shaking the present  really came from.  It wasn’t that they were trying to figure out what the present was, they were really trying to scare the mouse out first before opening it.

Have a Merry Christmas.
