Ghastly little children and zombie corpses in elevators aren't the only things petrifying people around the world this holiday season. It looks like even Frosty himself is getting in on the act to wish us all a very happy (and spooky) holiday.

Thanks to YouTube's UCMagic and this prank -- in which patrons pick up a fallen sign from a storefront's "display" snowman only to come face to face with a Christmas present they never expected -- the holiday season will forever be changed. Yet despite being horribly shaken, each customer seemed to enjoy the hoax, welcoming it with a warm holiday cheer. Or maybe those were shrieks.

Either way, to the unfortunate shoppers on the prank's receiving end, and to all, Happy Holidays! And watch out for living snowmen.
