Elf on the Shelf

What is elf on the shelf?
Elf on the Shelf is a tradition that comes from a book written by Carol Aebersold and her daughter Chanda Bell. It’s a Christmas book that explains how Santa knows who is naughty or nice. In the book, the elves visit from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve and hide in their homes. When everyone goes to bed, the elf flies to the North Pole to report to Santa and before the family wakes up the next morning he or she hides in a new spot. It’s like the ultimate game of hide and seek!

My cousin’s are really young and my sister and I thought that we would surprise them with I hunt to find their Elf. (Snowbell) So we left clues everywhere over the house but we made it easy. The middle cousin was so happy. She woke up first so she found her first. But we made a mess there was toilet paper everywhere. But the mess was worth it.
