It was the nightmare before Christmas.
An Australian woman lived out every arachnophobe’s worst fear after finding a giant spider with eggs lurking inside her gingerbread house packaging.
“This isn’t what I ordered?” joked Sydney’s Katie Gompertz in a Monday Facebook post detailing the horrifying discovery.
Accompanying photos show the massive huntsman spider clutching an egg sac while perched amid webbing that it wove inside the box.
According to the Facebook post, Gompertz had ordered a “readymade gingerbread house” from local grocery chain Woolworths because she thought it would be easier than building one herself.
“Only in Australia, only in 2020,” she lamented, adding “Seriously I don’t say this often but: why me?”
Fortunately, social media was quick to commiserate with her predicament.
“Are you friggin SERIOUS?” wrote one aghast commenter about the hairy squatter.
“That’s it cancel Xmas,” said another.
Another shared a gif of Kevin McCallister from “Home Alone” running around his house in fear.
One Facebook comedian quipped, “Did they charge extra for the on-site resident?”
Huntsman spiders, which are known for their speed and ability to hunt, can grow nearly 1 foot in length, generally live in Australia, Africa and other temperate climates, according to a 2003 study.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time a huntsman spider has infiltrated another’s home.
Last December, a woman opened a pygmy possum box to find a whole colony of the hairy interlopers scuttling about inside.
