Christmas is a busy time for Santa, and lots of work has to go into preparing for the big night. All the toys have to be made perfectly for all the boys and girls. The reindeer have to be shoed and brushed prepared for the journey. The big red suit has to be cleaned and made ready to keep Santa warm on his long cold flight. With all the craziness of last minute preparations, sometimes the big man needs a little hand in checking his list twice. That’s where the elf on the shelf comes in!
Have you heard of an Elf on the Shelf?
We certainly have… many of our guests have been talking to Santa about their special elf that stays with them at their own home leading up to Christmas. Kids love to tell Santa what they named their elf and what mischief it has gotten up to around the house.
For those who don’t know, an Elf on the Shelf is a children’s picture book that comes with a little elf. A family decides on a name for their elf to give it his or her magical powers.
As the story goes, the elf leaves every night once everyone has gone to bed, heading to the North Pole to report back to Santa. The elf then returns each morning and appears in a new part of the house (sometimes getting up to mischief).
There are a few more rules with the elf… but you will have to read the story. The one thing you do need to know is that the elf usually arrives at a family’s home in December!
The Elf on the Shelf has quickly become a Christmas Tradition in many homes and schools around the world.
