The "Elf on the Shelf" tradition is based on a 2004 book about an elf sent by Santa to monitor kids' behavior at Christmas time. Many parents see the Elf as a creative and fun Christmas ritual; others deride it a manufactured, marketed holiday tradition, plus one more annoying obligation for parents at the holidays. Some argue that a watching elf sends a messed-up message to kids about surveillance and privacy. Is the Elf on the Shelf a great tradition or just creepy? 🎄😱
