That’s . . . very odd, and perhaps uncomfortably androgynous. I’m not at all impressed. I may even be a little disturbed.

I always ask before I arrive if there are any elves linger in the house. but keeping track of all the animals and babies will be difficult. i always assign them north pole numbers . easy to remember

Sadly, that’s a point I’d never even considered. Getting an “adult” elf on the shelf to sit or stand in inappropriate ways, with inappropriate gestures, and so forth, are shocking and really prove the point to me that some people shouldn’t have children. If an adult could think to make these “baby” elves (or even the animals) do the same sort of things, then maybe that person shouldn’t even be around children.

In the beginning the elf was a cute idea, then they added pets and then made kits for the elves to show up for birthdays, and parents were not reading and finding out what the original concept was.  It seems the creators gave up on the original concept as well and have made it a total exploitation trying to get more dollars.  I am really not interested in this whole elf thing now. But now we have to figure out how to get around it.

I agree. Seems like now, the elves only do bad things and kids ask Santa why this is acceptable, and does this occur at the North Pole?

The real sad part about this is the parents are the ones who determine what the elves do.  In the past when children tell me the elves are acting up I have suggested that it may be because they are behaving like the children.  I don’t know anymore though about how I will handle this. It’s all improv and staying in character.  Importantantly though most of the time the elves are on their best behavior at the North Pole.

I believe this HAS come up in years past here. I have had friends ask me WHAT CAN I DO? I'm RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS & IT'S GETTING MESSY! So I have "helped" in the past by telling the parents when I get to the home; ASK ABOUT THE SHENANIGANS! ASK HOW TO MAKE IT STOP. When this happens, I ask, WELL WHO'S CLEANING IT UP?

  • The children usually say: Mom, or Dad
  • I then say: This is unexpectable behavior, and I'll remove him/her RIGHT NOW and take him/her HOME WITH ME & a NEW ONE WILL BE ON THE KITCHEN TABLE tomorrow morning and NO MORE MESSING AROUND!!! 
  • If they say YES, I take it and get it back to Mom or Dad B/4 I leave or it's outside the house when I leave.
  • If they say NO but can you warn him/her, I give the elf a stern warning and tell the elf I better hear that tomorrow kitchen table and nothing out of place, & then Monday front room & so on. Always telling the elf I WILL REPLACE YOU in a heartbeat, I NEED GOOD to GREAT examples, NOT THE MISCHIEF ELF doing what the children CAN'T EVEN DO!!!
  • I've heard this has helped stop it all and the parents know where to "hide the elf" for the next few days, no more TP all over the house, OUTSIDE all over the cars and or the Christmas lights outside are now inside??????

It's crazy the stories I've heard because of this crazy elf!

Last season, as a result of all the negative/naughty escapades of the Elfs on Shelves, I told the children that I had arranged a weekly meeting of all the EONS's and any elf that had been naughty was to remain at the North Pole on reindeer poop cleaning duties.

I did receive a few messages re Elf behavior improvement :)

I do not like the whole idea of Elf on a shelf. Never have, never will.

To be quite frank, I abhor the little pest and absolutely refuse to engage parents on the issue. Not my circus, not my monkeys. I’ll take a hard pass, thank you very much. The characters we create are supposed to be role models for children.

Could you see that, instead of sneak peeks, Santa's caught taking down the shelves Christmas Even! Like he doesn't have enough to do because of those little critters!

Schwindy, you asked for it . . .

Santa gets his little red toolbox out and starts removing the shelves.

Little Jimmy: “What are you doing, Santa?”

Santa: “I’m removing the shelf—as if I don’t already have enough to do tonight—and taking little, uh  . . . whatever his name is . . . with me.”

Little Jimmy: “But Santa—“

Santa (gets down on one knee): “Listen, my dear little Bobby—“

Little Jimmy: “My name is Jimmy.”

Santa (stares right into the camera, exasperated, and sighs): “Whatever.”

Santa sighs once more, gets up, walks back to the chimney, slings the bag over his shoulder, and knows it’s going to be a long, rough night.

When he finally gets done—thousands of shelves down and angry elves tied up in his bag (those naughty elves will go back to working on the assembly line only after doing a stint in jail)—he turns up Twisted Sister’s Christmas album and smiles as the lights from the castle come into view.

Perhaps we can take additional elves and remodel the house for the family

    • How do You Portray Santa?
      Portraying Santa is acting; it is a characterization of a mythical character.

      Most of us never think of ourselves as actors, but we are. Certain characteristics of Santa Claus have been handed down from one generation to another. The way we dress and conduct ourselves all follow an established pattern.

      Santa Claus is one of the most recognizable characters throughout the world. This came about from the advertising campaign of the Coke Cola Company and the creative painting genius, of Haddon Sundblom. Coke Cola was looking to increase winter sales of its soft drink and hired Sundblom to produce illustrations for prominent magazines. These illustrations appeared during the holiday season from the late 1930s into the early 1970s and set the standard for how Santa should look.

      This characterization of Santa with rosy cheeks, a white beard, handlebar mustache plus a red costume trimmed in white fur is the image most everyone has in their minds. Unconsciously people are going to judge you against that image. If your beard isn’t white or you have a soiled suit it will register with the onlooker.

      By the way, the majority of Sundblom's paintings depict Santa with a Brown Belt and Brown Boots. Not until his later illustrations did he change the color to Black for these items. Within the past few years many costume companies have offered the Coke Cola Suit and it has become very popular. You can tell it by the large buttons and absence of fur down the front of the jacket.

      No matter how you portray Santa, be it home visits, schools, churches, parades, corporate events, malls, hospitals we all make an entrance and an impression! The initial impression we make determines if our client will ask us to return.

      The 5 Second Rule

      I have a theory: When you enter the presence of your audience you have about 5 seconds to make people believe you are the real Santa.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.
