Frosty - The Elf on The Shelf
This Christmas tradition is new to me and has the potential of becoming one only second to the tradition of Santa himself. My niece is completely obsessed with this concept and fully believes “Frosty” was sent by Santa to observe her behavior in order to determine if she belongs on the naughty or nice list. As we moved him around the house, she immediately identified the new location screaming at the top of her lungs. Of course, as amused adults, we played along with great wonderment and even voiced our concern it was kind of creepy having a miniature elf “moving” around the house on his own will. I went as far as to say, “That thing better not wind up in my room tonight!”
I just informed my niece Frosty has to fly back to the North Pole tonight and she’s protesting the idea aggressively. I am sure she will miss him dearly, but just as the holiday season comes and goes, she’ll soon be welcoming Frosty back into her home next year. Oh and we’ll be just as eager and ready for that moment as well for we are all looking forward to endless laughter this new tradition has brought all of us.
