It's the most wonderful time of the year. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose and parents keeping their kids in line with that creepy elf sittin' on a shelf.
During the Christmas season, parents around the world are tasked with the extra nightly routine of positioning and taking care of a little buddy. Elf on the Shelf is a small toy elf that comes to stay with families during Christmas and reports back to Santa on their behavior.
Every night while the kids are asleep the elf moves to another place in the house, keeping the magic alive.
But sometimes Elf on the Shelf gets a little naughty. Lately an internet trend has been going viral each year where parents show off pictures of how their Elf on the Shelf got out of control.
