I remember hearing about them a year or two ago, but I hadn't seen them on sale here until this year.

With something so recent being marketed heavily as "A Christmas tradition", it seems rather forced to me (not to mention there's a "birthday tradition" one too...).

I've not even heard of the 'tradition' until a couple/few years ago...

I've never heard of this and I'm scared to google it without safe search on.

I don't plan to celebrate the elf on the shelf if we have kids.

They're creepy. The idea that they come to life at night is the stuff of nightmares. It's too much work to come up with unique ideas throughout December year after year. And I don't like the idea of the reporting back to Santa about your behavior. Isn't Santa supposed to know if you've been bad or good?

Plus the very idea that Christmas is only for perfect kids is a bit off. Kids make good choices and bad choices, but we should teach them that they're worthwhile and loved regardless of that, not that they better watch their back because some little creepy doll is gonna snitch on them when they go to bed.

I have a feeling an Elf on the Shelf horror movie is on the drawing boards.

Yeah, it's hilarious!

I participate in a version of it . . . The little elves freak me out for some reason. My family and I have been stitching little dolls that look like voodoo dolls and saying that the Krampus will come after them if you're not good. Don't ask how that's less scary. It just is.
