Woman Releases 1,500 Ladybugs Inside House During Gift Exchange And Stuns Her Entire Family

When she's not blogging for the 'net, June loves cuddling with her cats and reading in her library at home.

Many people believe ladybugs bring good luck, and six-time cancer survivor Cathy Walters is one of them.

She’s been known to release the cute critters in her house or garden.

Cathy recently invited her family over for a Christmas gift exchange in New Boston, Michigan. Prior to the celebration, Cathy learned her blood levels were higher than normal, and she worried her cancer would return for the seventh time.

After hearing about her test results, Cathy’s brother bought her 1,500 ladybugs.

Michigan winters are so cold, the bugs would have died immediately had they been released outside, so Cathy placed them safely in the refrigerator.

She didn’t want them to die outside, but she also didn’t want to keep them in the fridge for too long, either.

After the family exchanged their gifts, they sat around the living room, chatting about their presents. But in the clip below, Cathy walks into the room with the 1,500 ladybugs in hand — and releases them right onto the carpet!

The entire family was completely stunned by the sudden move, and you can hear her husband yelling in the background. (He’s very supportive of Cathy’s affinity for ladybugs but couldn’t help but wonder why she did that!)

“Cursing and poking fun of one another is a common trait in this family, so nobody’s feelings were hurt at all,” her family says.
