Our Elf on the Shelf made an appearance at our home last weekend right after we watched the Elf on the Shelf movie with the boys. I don’t know why but Jordan named him Bee.
For those who may not be familiar with this new holiday tradition, it begins when the Elf is brought home and introduced to the children. Each Elf comes with a book, that the parents and children read together to awaken the Elf’s magical powers. The children then get the very special task of naming the Elf. Each night, when the children are in bed, the Elf uses his magical powers to fly up to the North Pole to give Santa the full report on the children’s behavior, or requests from the children such as what they would like for Christmas. When the Elf returns from his nightly trip to the North Pole, he finds a spot to sit and wait for the children to awaken the next morning. And so it goes, every night the Elf takes a trip to the North Pole and he finds a different spot to sit upon return.
Does your family have an Elf on the Shelf?
