NBC News (NBC) - If you're traveling by air this holiday season... Think twice about the holiday items you pack.

For fire safety concerns, some airlines ban "Christmas crackers" - which are those wrapped and decorated cardboard cylinders with a joke or small gift inside.

Wax candles can be stored in a carry-on or checked bag, but gel candles must be placed in checked luggage due to the TSA's rules regarding gels and aerosols.
