Let the Elf on a Shelf keep an eye on your little ones this holiday season


    It’s almost Thanksgiving and that means it’s time to be on the lookout for the Elf on the Shelf. “The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition” is a storybook and doll set dreamed up by Carol Aebersold as the answer to her children’s question: How did Santa know if they were naughty or nice? A little elf doll appeared in their home each Thanksgiving and sat quietly observing the children during the day. After her three children fell asleep each night, the elf would fly off to the North Pole to give Santa his report. The next morning, the children would awake to find he’d moved to a new spot in the house to watch them for another day. Aebersold’s family loved their tradition so much, she and her daughter Chanda Bell wrote a storybook to go along with the doll and now sell them as a set. If you’d like to start the tradition in your home, The Elf on the Shelf would make a great holiday gift. Give a grandchild, niece or nephew The Elf on the Shelf when you see them at Thanksgiving and then have them keep you up to date on his whereabouts as Christmas approaches.
