Elf on the Shelf

Har ni hört talas om Elf on the Shelf? Jag hade aldrig gjort det, men via nätet har jag nu sprungit på fenomenet flera gånger. En söt, amerikansk (?) tradition.

 

This is the basic concept of the elf story: The elf works for Santa.  Every year after Thanksgiving your very same family elf returns to your house from the North Pole. You see, Santa has so much going on in preparation for Christmas. He needs some extra help keeping an eye on all of the children of the world, and your elf has been assigned to your family by Santa to watch the children and their behavior.

Your family gets to name your elf when he first arrives.

Then each and every night, after everyone goes to sleep, the elf travels back to the North Pole to report that day’s behavior to Santa. The elf comes back in the morning, and hides somewhere in your house. Your family can have fun seeing who can find the elf in his new hiding spot first- BUT- the elf must NEVER EVER be touched by children- or else some of his magic might wear off, forever. On Christmas Eve, you’ll bid your elf goodbye.  He will hop a ride back to the North Pole on Santa’s sleigh… until next year when he will be back!
