This video shows a kid discovering the Elf On A Shelf has invaded his house. He isn’t happy and wants to sleep in the other room as a result. And I don’t blame him.
The Elf On The Shelf is a new Christmas tradition that really needs to die. Honestly, if you use this gimmick to ensure your kids behave then I feel sorry for you.
Telling kids that Santa doesn’t give presents to naughty children is one thing, but moving a creepy elf around the house every day to hammer home the message is manipulation of the highest order.
Santa exists, OK, but the Elf On The Shelf is a mere toy that you can touch, pick up, punch, or throw out of the window at your leisure. Break free from this tyranny!
