The Transportation Security Administration has announced that you are going to be subject to more searches this holiday season. If you’re planning on traveling with a present for Gramma Lucy, DON’T wrap it. The TSA says that they will be unwrapping and inspecting holiday gifts. The official TSA blogger wrote that Christmas presents need to be screened just like anything else and they may need to open a bag due to anomaly or alarm. Conan O’Brien joked that the TSA is unwrapping Christmas presents because they’re “tired of looking at our junk.” So, I guess wait to land before you wrap your gifts.
According to a new survey by do it yourself home good retailer IKEA one in ten of us still sleep with our teddy bears.
