30 Days of Christmas Inspiration – Day 4 – Takik the Elf

Today, I’m leaving all the inspiration making to my friend Stephanie. She and her family are playing Elf on the Shelf – I don’t know if “playing” is the right word here, but for those of you who don’t know what “Elf on the Shelf” is, let me explain.. I had never heard of it until last year when we received one for Christmas!

Basically, when you get an “Elf on the Shelf”, your family adopts an Elf and names it. The Elf then magically flies back every night to the North Pole to see Santa Claus and tell him who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. The elves sometimes magically re-appear on different shelves or do different things at night.  Some have been known to be naughty themselves, stringing underwear on the Christmas tree or any number of funny things. Kids wake up in the morning and can’t wait to see what their Elves have done or where they’ve hidden themselves.

It’s fun. My little cousins had an Elf and their mom said that knowing that the elf was watching them and reporting back to Santa, they really behaved around Christmas time.

Well, back to my friend Stephanie.  Her Elf, Takik, got a little naughty last night – and I can’t help but think he may have been watching a few too many music videos on mtv.. Stephanie says that Takik prefers pink haired ladies.. See for yourself!

So, what do you think?
