Gifts could pose problem at airports
Airport security may take a bit of the ho-ho out of your holiday season if your beautifully wrapped gifts appear to contain something worthy of closer scrutiny, the Transportation Security Administration said Friday.
"It might make sense to wrap your gifts after you get there," said Jonella J. Culmer of the TSA.
Wrapped packages can be put through normal airport security X-ray machines, but if inspectors can't figure out what they contain or see something that concerns them the packages will be opened before they go on board a plane.
