Do you participate in the tradition of The Elf on The Shelf?

XxFallenAngelxX XxFallenAngelxX
If you have small children, do you put out the Elf on the Shelf?

I personally love him. Our Elf was very creative and came up with lots of ideas last year.

If anyone doesn't know what this is, just google Elf on the Shelf and so many stores will come up!

If you do have him in your home, what are some of your most creative endeavors for him?

My elf is loaded with creativity.

I have heard of it but don't have one since I don't have little ones. We have been talking about getting it for my cousin's kids though. I love seeing what others come up with for the adventures.

I don't have kids, so I don't do it and I honestly don't think I would even if I did have kids. I saw a commercial for it a few years ago (didn't realise it was an actual thing then) and it creeped me out. It's just weird.

Here ya go-


The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition (ISBN 978-0-9769907-9-6) is a children’s picture book written by American mother and daughter Carol Aebersold and Chanda Bell, and illustrated by Coë Steinwart. The book was self-published in 2005 by CCA and B Publishing in Marietta, GA. The Elf on the Shelf comes in a keepsake box that features the hardbound book and a small pixie scout elf. Written in rhyme with accompanying watercolor illustrations, it is a Christmas tale of how Santa knows who is naughty and nice. The described tradition of The Elf on the Shelf usually begins around Thanksgiving and lasts until Christmas Eve, when the elves return to the North Pole until the next holiday season. The book spent time as the number one best-seller at Barnes and Noble's website.

Every day from Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve, each family's scout elf watches over the children and then at night, once everyone goes to bed, the elf flies back to the North Pole to report back to Santa about what activities, good and bad, took place throughout the day. Before the family wakes up each morning, the scout elf flies back from the North Pole and hides. By hiding in a new spot each morning around the house, the scout elf and the family play an on-going game of hide and seek. The Elf on the Shelf explains that elves get their magic by being named. In the back of each book, families have an opportunity to write their elf's name and the date that they adopted it. Once the elf is named, the scout elf receives its special Christmas magic which allows it to fly to and from the North Pole. However, the magic might go if 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 aren't supposed to touch their scout elf, they can talk to it and tell it all their Christmas wishes so it can report back to Santa accurately.
