There are elves and gnomes and snowmen on the way. Santa too is coming up on his sleigh. It’s almost Christmas, ladies! How ’bout adding a dash of magic to your place by hiding Christmas characters around your home? You’ll love doing this and so will the kids!
If you’re wondering what is the elf on a shelf tradition, be prepared to be delighted with this little story. The tradition started off with the book “The Elf on the Shelf” which told us about Santa’s scout elves, who are Santa’s eyes and ears at children’s homes the world over. They ensure that the little ones are geared up for Christmas and look forward to a gala time!
Here are some brilliant ideas to place your elves on the shelves so strategically that you’ll want them to remain long after Christmas is over. What’s even better is that the elves are accompanied by snowmen, Santa and gnomes too!
