Oh, you guys. It’s officially the season to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, in a myriad of ways which have exactly nothing to do with that Holy Night in Bethlehem.
Lights, pine trees, Santa – yep, there was none of that sh*t in a stable all forlorn. No Turducken, seafood buffet, or Netflix holiday specials. And yet, we associate all of those glorious, delicious, and wonderful things with Christmas.
Some of us even place a sort of creepy-looking elf in various positions all over the house as part of the season’s traditions… and some of us are trapped in a cycle of doing that every night of December, by our kids, who love/demand the Elf be in increasingly creative poses year after year.
If you are one of those people, we feel you. We know you just want to sit down with a wine and watch Bad Santa when the kids go to bed. We also know you’re a loving parent, so you will instead, for all 24 nights of December, try your best to give your kids a thrill the next morning.
To help you out, we’ve come up with 24 (totally PG-rated, because trust us, many Elfs are… not) ideas for your Elf on the Shelf til Christmas finally comes.
Holly Wainwright is done. Finished. Broken. Thanks to Elf on the Shelf. Post continues after.
