Elf On The Shelf gets MY Approval

Why on the "elf" is people making such a big deal about Elf on the Shelf?

Beats the heck out of me!!! I have read a few articles posted about the negative opinions about the little elf doll that goes around creating laughter from kids, giving something for kids to look forward too, and adding FUN to the holiday. Who CARES about the shenanigans your elf gets into? WHO? As long as it makes your family giddy with excitement and you enjoy watching your children's faces each morning, then who has the right to pee on your parade? Stop listening to the negativity, PLEASE.

Make the Elf on the Shelf whatever you want. If you want a mischievous elf getting into crazy and over the top antics then you have my approval for giving your children a sense of humor. If you are a more spiritual elf and you leave scriptures and Christ like sayings to boost your families Christmas and holiday spirits then, you as well, have my approval. If you want a service centered elf, giving heartfelt acts of kindness and inspiring your family to do the same, then you have my approval. If you want an elf that plays hide and seek with your children and requires minimal work, then you DEFINITELY have my approval!

You see? It is your tradition, and it is your elf. You can make your elf whatever you want and as long as it brings you happiness and memorable memories that you will treasure forever, then go.... be not afraid of the negative Nelly's. Go ahead and make your family happy... I APPROVE!

You're silly, Sherrie. I agree. Too many opinions on too many things. Christmas is whatever you want it to be. We have an elf at our house and he creeps me out. :)

I love this post! I, as well, am tired of listening to all those people complain about how "creepy" or how "misbehaved" the elf is. I want to scream "IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU!" but your blog post said that in a much sweeter way. Good for you, I spprove!
