How does Santa really know who is naughty or nice? The answer is finally revealed in... The Elf on the Shelf, a Christmas Tradition. The Elf on the Shelf, a Christmas Tradition is an activity the entire family will enjoy. Based on the tradition Carol Aebersold began with her family in the 1970s, this cleverly rhymed children's book explains that Santa knows who is naughty and/or nice because he sends a scout elf to every home. During the holiday season, the elf watches children by day and reports to Santa each night. When children awake, the elf has returned from the North Pole and can be found hiding in a different location. This activity allows The Elf on the Shelf to become a delightful hide-and-seek game. In addition, each shipment is marked for special delivery from Santa's workshop.

We got this as a gift a couple of years ago and my daughter looks forward to it every Christmas. We (she) named ours Dan and every day she looks to see what "Dan" has been up to over night. Her little girl "naughtiness" goes way down, too, knowing we have a "messenger to Santa" hanging out in our living room.
