    I would think all the wrapping paper that is used to wrap gifts is the biggest environmental problem with Christmas. Most wrapping paper is not recyclable and ends up in landfills. If you have a choice it is best to buy recycled paper or use old newspapers to wrap gifts.

    Well, it’s hard to say, but Christmas is universally bad for the environment. Decorations and cards are created and then thrown away, tons of water and resources are used to make gifts, and trees are chopped down for Christmas trees.

    This article points out that the biggest problem is in travel and food! (http://www.boston.com/news/globe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/2006/12/10/a_cleaner_greener_christmas/) Many Americans travel and consume food from all over the country, which is definitely a negative environmental impact of the holiday season.
