ASSOCIATED PRESS

Good news on the cheap souvenirs front. The Transportation Security Administration says air travelers will be allowed to pack “some” snow globes in their carry-on luggage this holiday season. 

Which snow globes are good to go? According to a TSA blog post published on Tuesday, snow globes that “appear to contain less than 3.4 ounces (approximately tennis-ball size) will be permitted if the entire snow globe, including the base, is able to fit in the same one [sic] clear, plastic, quart-sized, re-sealable bag as a passenger’s other liquids.”
