Recently I have had a few Facebook friends ask about Elf on the Shelf ideas. I wanted to let my readers know I will be doing a 25 days of Elf on the Shelf SOON!! Prior to that, I will also be doing a Elf on the Shelf – Smoky Mountain Christmas Travel Series. I am so excited about the series and know your family will enjoy it as well.
Make sure to check back and please feel free to share this sneak peek image on Pinterest and other social media sites. Your friends will enjoy adding it to their Elf on the Shelf picture collection.
What is an Elf on the Shelf?
The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition is a 2005 children’s picture book, written and self-published by American author Carol Aebersold and daughter Chanda Bell and illustrated by Coë Steinwart, featuring a Christmas-themed tale, written in rhyme, that explains how Santa knows who is naughty and who is nice.
In accordance with the traditional story, The Elf on the Shelf usually begins at Thanksgiving and continues until Christmas Eve when the elves return to the North Pole until the next holiday season. The Elf on the Shelf comes in a keepsake box that features a hardbound picture book and a small soft toy in form of a pixie scout elf.
