What is Elf on the Shelf?

Over the pat few years, a new Christmas tradition has started becoming popular called Elf on the Shelf.

The trend all started with a 2005 American Children’s book called The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition by Bell Chanda and Carol V. Aebersold. The story is about a scout elf who was sent by Santa to check whether the children were being naughty or nice.

Then, a doll of the elf in the book was created, and parents began bringing the character to life in their own homes.

Every night in December, parents hide the elf doll that children believe has been sent by Father Christmas in different places around the house. Then, children will find it when they wake up.

The tradition has now become popular in many countries around the world and is a fun way to get your children excited for Christmas and bring a little bit of festive magic.
