Got an Elf on Your Shelf?

Our Patch Elf on the Shelf has gotten ahold of the computer and now wants to know what his buddy elves are up to. Share your photos here!

About five years ago, one of Santa's helpers showed up on store shelves and didn't last long. The petite elves became a parent's best friend almost overnight and have since made their way to your house Thanksgiving night.

They roam your house—and life—for the weeks between fall/winter holidays, keeping watch over the kids, reminding them to be good because the Elf on the Shelf has direct line to Santa in the North Pole. Naughty behavior is not tolerated by the elf and is reported immediately. Some families even go so far as to remind their children of the elf other times of year when behavior warrants it. And everyone names theirs. Scout, Jingles, Sandy and Patchie are just a few we've heard.

The elf has become so mainstream, in fact, that some parents feel like bad ones for not using the little helper as a tool for good behavior, according to the Huffington Post.

The Elf is on the house but the fun thing is he moves every night. My granddaughter knows that the elf is watching her and she looks for him every night. Hey any help is welcomed!
