Mugshots of the day: People who look like Santa
Here is today’s 20 Minute Trivia:
Q… People who have a real Christmas tree will get 25,000 more of these than people who don’t… what is it?
According to an insect expert at the University of Bergen in Norway, if you have a real Christmas tree . . . it's probably CRAWLING with BUGS.
Associate professor Bjarte Jordal said that real trees can be home to up to 25,000 different insects and spiders.
Things you'll find in your tree include springtails . . . which are sometimes called book lice or snow fleas . . . and also spiders, moths, mites, and bark lice.
Most of them burrow into the tree and hibernate for the winter . . . but when you bring the tree inside your nice, warm home, they WAKE UP.
The good news is that most of those bugs live IN the tree . . . which means they're probably not going to leave it and spread throughout your house. Your house is also dry . . . and
there's not a lot of food for them. So they'll die pretty quickly.
Q… Almost 70% of the people in this survey say they get one of these every Christmas… what is it?
A… A gift they don’t want.
It may seem a little late in the game for us to be telling you about the Christmas gifts NO ONE WANTS . . . but at least we left you a LITTLE time to fix any potential disasters, right?
According to a new survey, these are the five Christmas gifts that people want the LEAST this year . . .
#1.) "Fifty Shades of Grey".
#2.) A DVD of Olympics highlights.
#3.) A weight loss DVD.
#4.) A jumpsuit or adult onesie.
#5.) A Christmas sweater.
The survey also found that people say their grandparents are most likely to give them gifts they don't want.
66% of people say they receive at least one gift they don't want every Christmas.
