Elf on the Shelf – a Christmas tradition blue-eyed boy scout eleven
The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition. Based on the tradition Carol Aebersold started out with her family in the 1970s, this cleverly rhymed children’s book explains that Santa knows who is naughty and / or nice because he sends a scout eleven to every home. During the holiday season, the eleven children’s watches by day and reports to Santa each night. When children awake, the elf has returned from the North Pole and can be found hiding in a different location. This activity allows The Elf on the Shelf to become a delightful hide-and-seek game.
