What is Elf on The Shelf Tradition?

Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas toy which emerges from a Children’s story book that goes as back as 2005. This elf is said to be Santa Claus’s scout that keeps a watch on the children and reports back to him whether the kids have been good or naughty. If they have been good, Santa gives them good presents, something that works wonderfully for children. So parents bring in an elf toy and place him at different spots in the house, before the little children wake up. Kids are not supposed to touch the elf, or all its ‘magic’ vanishes and they get no presents.

The tradition soon went viral and grew into a merchandise in itself across UK and the US. So now days before Christmas, pictures of elf on the shelf are posted online. And it is not just the kids, but the older adults are enjoying their version of these toys too. So pictures of the “Elf on the Shelf” toys are posted online. How to Play Secret Santa 2020 Virtually?
