A Christmas Tradition

What is Elf on the Shelf? About a 12 years ago a mother daughter team decided to write a book about a special scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists. When a family adopts a scout elf and gives it a name, the scout elf receives its Christmas magic. Each night between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve when everyone goes to bed the elf flies back to the North Pole to tell Santa Claus about all of the day’s adventures. Before everyone wakes up each morning, the elf returns to its family and perches in a different place to watch the family. Children love to wake up and race around the house looking for their scout elf each morning. With the purchase of a book comes either a boy or girl elf. The book tells how the magic might disappear if the scout elf is touched, so the rule for The Elf on the Shelf states, “There’s only one rule that you have to follow, so I will come back and be here tomorrow: Please do not touch me. My magic might go, and Santa won’t hear all I’ve seen or I know.” Although families are told not to touch their scout elf, they can speak to it and tell it all their Christmas wishes so that it can report back to Santa accurately. The story ends on Christmas Day with the elf leaving to stay with Santa for the rest of the year until the following Christmas season. Here’s a look at some of our favorites from over the years, enjoy! img_6294 fullsizerender2 img_6249 img_6231 img_3612 img_3626 img_3604 img_6203 img_3886 img_3599 img_6223 img_3602 img_6111 img_3605 img_3597 img_3686 img_3694 img_3752 img_3778 img_3756 img_3656 img_6134 img_6137 img_3847 img_6132 img_3923 img_3978
