Elf on the Shelf
For the past couple of years, I've been seeing this little Elf on the Shelf turning up in folks' homes. I mean, I'm not in their homes, but I see the pictures they post on Facebook and that's almost the same thing. The funny thing is that I had that elf when I was little! And, unbelievably, I have photographic evidence for once!! See him in the upper left corner? Perched on our contact papered faux mantlepiece? My elf had horse hair and wires sticking out of his appendages and a Becca-induced bobble head, but he was always there. Every Christmas for as long as I can remember. I liked him. He didn't hide all over our house. He just came out during the holidays to play with me and sometimes scratch or cut me. I didn't mind, though. It was Christmas and it's all good at Christmas!
