This post is Christmas related …..
Have you heard of Elf on the Shelf?
Okay… to me it’s a very American tradition. The Elf which arrives on the 1st December every year. The Elf is sent by Father Christmas to come and keep a eye out on your child and make sure they are being good so they can stay on the nice list.
Every family seems to do things differently.
Last year (2015) we had Buddy the naughty Elf to visit. Oh he was a pickle he ate all the chocolates out the sweet box, he swung from the light shades and he even knocked over the Christmas tree amongst other things.
Bear and Bells favourite thing last year was their pants and knickers on the Christmas tree!
Some families have a nice Elf come to stay. They do really helpful and kind things. They leave notes to say thank you for having me, bring some thing of the children’s favourite things, leave the chocolate box untouched, do the ironing and the hoovering.
I’m hoping the nice Elf comes this year.
The Elf goes Christmas eve morning so he can help santa prepare for the long night he has ahead of him… He leaves nice breakfast and a Christmas eve box which has new pj’s, dvd, hot chocolate and a snack.
Will you be having a visit from A Elf this year? I hope we do…..
