Everyone can get a little chilly over Christmas.

And snakes are no exception to this fact! So, when Spaghetti the snake received his Christmas jumper this year he was elated to be able to snuggle up all nice and warm over the festive period.

Spaghetti is actually a rescue snake.

Spaghetti's owner Sean took Spaghetti in four years ago, after a friend of his whom Sean had lived with moved to England.

Sean's friend had taken to Facebook to find a home for the snake.

However, no one seemed able to take in the little guy, so Sean stepped up and has not regretted his decision for a second.

Sean said Spaghetti is "literally a big hug".

In an interview with The Dodo, Sean explained :

"I never thought I would own a snake, but he's been the best pet for me, in all honesty. When I pick him up, he'll wrap around my arm and then try and move to my neck then the top of my head. He's literally a big hug."

Sean's sister surprised Spaghetti and Sean with the jumper on Christmas day.

Apparently, Sean's sister had been acting suspicious leading up to Christmas, by trying to ascertain how long Spaghetti was.

She had only begun learning to crochet and started asking weird questions about the snake.

"She was asking how big or round is he, and I said, 'About an inch or so'. She asked me how long he was, and I was like, 'Well, he's about 39 inches last time I measured him'," Sean explained.

Sean shared the photo to Reddit where it quickly went viral.

Sean was enamoured with the jumper which his sister had crocheted using a PVC pipe as a model. When he shared the image, one person asked how Sean got Spaghetti into the jumper.

Spaghetti does most of the work.

"I just kinda put his head in one end and he just wiggles to the other end on his own. I just hold the sweater in place while he works his way down. He stops just before his head pops out the other end and just chills in it. Then after a few minutes, he'll pop his head out."

Hopefully, Spaghetti's wardrobe will continue to grow in the future.

Sean hopes that once his sister gets better at crocheting, she might surprise the pair again with more jumpers in the future — perhaps even one with a pattern on it! I could definitely see Spaghetti rocking something with stripes!
