The following video of an Elf on the Shelf may shock you. Grab the kids and watch closely. If you own an Elf, be vigilant about where he/she/it is at all times.

 

Imagine for a moment an entire alien race posing as cute toys that trick us into giving them a home on our shelves. We purchase them with the hope of making our child's Christmas spirit reach astronomical levels. But in reality all we're doing is feeding these red invaders the Christmas spirit they crave! That's right, folks—while you're playing tricks on your children, these smiling blue-eyed intruders gorge themselves on your child's Christmas spirit.

You'll notice at 0:04 the Elf sits casually on the kitchen counter.

At 0:14 the pantry door slowly opens and a moment later shuts. Clearly the hiding place for a thimble-size jar of Christmas spirit.

And at 0:24 the Elf makes a break for the dining room! Off to stuff his rosy red cheeks and his felt belly with delicious Christmas spirit.
