When does my elf come?
The Elf on the Shelf can arrive anytime, but typically he or she will return
at the beginning of the holiday season. In the United States, that’s usually
around Thanksgiving. But remember, every elf is unique, just like people; the
elf will come back just as soon as he or she is able!
What should I do if my elf is touched by mistake?
Christmas magic is very fragile, and if a scout elf is touched it may lose
its magic. If your elf has been touched, please sprinkle a little cinnamon
beside him or her before you go to bed; cinnamon is like vitamins for elves, and
it helps them get back to the North Pole. Once they arrive, the North Pole E.R.
doctors will check them out.
What if my elf hasn’t moved?
Don’t worry. Sometimes your elf will have a favorite spot, just like you
might have a favorite chair or a spot on the couch. If the elf hasn’t moved, it
is probably sitting in one of its favorite spots!
Why doesn’t my elf stay with me all year?
There are so many things that need to be done at the North Pole. With so many
toys to make, naughty and nice lists to finalize, trees to decorate and cookies
to bake, Santa needs his elves to help!
What does my elf tell Santa?
Your Elf on the Shelf reports all sorts of things to Santa, like when you’ve
been naughty and nice. If you do your chores, he or she tells Santa what a good
helper you are. When you don’t share your toys, he or she lets Santa know that,
too! Updates to your Christmas list are always welcome, and if you have a
special message for Santa, you can whisper that to your elf,
Why does my elf go to the North Pole every night?
Your Elf on the Shelf goes to the North Pole each and every night during the
holiday season so he or she won’t forget a single detail from the day to tell
Santa. This helps Santa and your elf keep the most up-to-date record of what
you’ve been up to!
Why do I see elves in stores? I thought they came from Santa.
Every Elf on the Shelf comes from Santa Claus. Some come direct from the
North Pole to your house, and some come from special adoption centers that Santa
has approved. The adoption centers are often located inside certain stores. Much
like you would go to the store to adopt a pet, your Elf on the Shelf can be
adopted, too. The important thing to remember is that no matter how an elf gets
to his or her family, they are all on the same special mission: to be Santa’s
eyes and ears during the holiday season.
