One tradition that came about while I was already living in Spain – and never fully understood.- THE ELF ON THE SHELF? Can anybody explain that to me? How in the world could that tradition even begin?? eeks.
All of a sudden I started seeing all of these pictures on my friends facebook profiles – of these little spies that they invited into their homes! The message to the kids – beware, eyes are upon you. I thought that this was just horrible… like having an official tattle tale. Well – after doing a bit of investigation, it’s not sooooo bad.
Most people use it in a fun, comical way, and now I’ve come to see it as a way of having more fun – a less commercial part of Christmas.
My question for you:
What are your thoughts on the topic? Would you use one? Do you have any elves in your house?
