Opinions vary on new Elf tradition

December 12, 2013

Janet Allen’s family elf, Elvis, got into the candy bowl with some of his other friends recently. Allen said finding Elvis is one of the first things her youngest son does each morning. (Submitted photo)

When Oliver arrived at Kristen McCaskill’s Starkville home on Wednesday morning, he was hanging head-first into a stocking. Oliver, who will live with the McCaskills until Christmas Eve, is an Elf on the Shelf.

Elf on the Shelf is a book that comes with an elf. A family “adopts” the elf and once it is adopted, the elf receives Christmas magic. If the children touch the elf, it loses its power.
