The Elf on the Shelf®: A Birthday Tradition tells the little-known story of the North Pole birthday tradition, and includes special instructions for families to invite their scout elf for a birthday visit. In Santa’s Christmas village, the scout elves have their own special way of celebrating birthdays—a tradition that goes back thousands of years. Now, at the request of children around the world, Santa has given special permission for his scout elves to share that tradition with the families who love them. But a scout elf cannot come to a birthday party unless it is invited. The Elf on the Shelf birthday book also includes a special Claus Couture Collection® birthday outfit just for the scout elf.
This past Saturday I learned two new things; how the Elf on the Shelf tradition was started and the how the new ">Elf on the Shelf Birthday tradition works.
