The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition is the very special tool that helps Santa know who to put on the Naughty and Nice list. This interactive holiday hide-and-seek tradition is perfect for children and families of all ages. The tradition begins when Santa sends his scout elves out to Elf Adoption Centers. Waiting for their families to bring them home, these patient elves hibernate until their family reads The Elf on the Shelf, gives their elf a very special name, and registers their adoption online. Once named, each scout elf will receive its Christmas magic and becomes a part of the family’s Christmas each and every year.
Although they cannot be touched, or else they may lose their magic, the elf will all the time listen and relay messages back to Santa. Taking in the entire day-to-day activities around the house, no good deed goes unnoticed; these scout elves take their job seriously. Before the family awakes each morning, their special scout elf will fly back to their home from the North Pole. Alternatively, since these elves like to play games, don’t anticipate finding them in the same spot! At the same time as some like to hide in the freezer (probably because it reminds them of the North Pole) and others prefer to sit down on the fireplace mantle or hang from the chandelier, these elves love to play hide-and-seek with their families
Year after year, children and adults alike are baffled by the mystery of how Santa actually knows who’s been naughty or nice. After much urging by the elves and Mrs. Claus, Santa has allowed his biggest secret to be revealed in The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition. At the start of each Christmas season, the elf appears to serve as Santa’s eyes and ears, traveling back to the North Pole each and every night to make a detailed report of the day’s activities. Children can register their elf online to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa.
