Again, with por and para, often the speaker determines which. The handiest thing to tell you is:
por = porque
para = a
para = for in the sense of purpose, use, destination, in order to, to, by
Por is for in the sense of in exchange for, period or extent of time, for the sake of, during in, per, by, through, along
Here are the verbs that use NEITHER "POR" NOR "PARA"
buscar = to look FOR, to seek
esperar = to wait FOR, to await
pedir = to ask FOR, to request
Certain verbs use "Por" = after ir, enviar, luchar, llamar, preguntar
#1 para la Navidad (by Christmas) OR
por la Navidad (because of)
Actually, Laura is correct except #1 needs "la" Navidad and "spnaish" is "spanish."
If you MUST use por or para, then #4 could be "viaja por autobús.
