Christmas in La Guardia

As you all know, I flew home for Crimma Friday evening. The halls of my choice New York airport, La Guardia, were definitely decked with boughs of holly and wreaths and all kinds of spirited stuff, but the best Crimma decorations are always the most unexpected. Such as.

The fact that they had to pay someone to design these signs, then pay someone else to print said signs, and then pay yet another person to place them in standing placard holders randomly dispersed throughout the security checkpoint lines - all these things amaze me*.

Santa himself, natch. Bag full o' gifts (possibly) included.

*Almost as much as it does that they feel they have a very legitimate need to produce these signs


  1. Guess Santa's missus took the lear jet home? TAS must consider snow globes a weapon, huh?

  2. I saw this sign too when I flew out of LGA two weeks ago. I really had to give it a good eye roll. I've flown home snow globes from multiple different locations before. It always amuses me how inconsistent regulations are on carry-on items. How important can it be to our safety if there seems to be no rhyme or reason to how it is enforced?

  3. I wonder why they post those signs up?

  4. No snow globes? How am I ever to decorate my awesome house now without them?

  5. Haha, that is NY for you!
