Starting A New Tradition

My niece Kayla and I have started our own tradition a few years ago. We have to make hot chocolate, popcorn, and watch the Polar Express at least once during the holiday season. Since I have a small tradition with her, I wanted to start one with my nephew Jacob. There's no tradition better than 'the elf on the shelf'. When you order 'the elf of the shelf' you will receive a book and an elf. The book explains everything your family needs to know about the elf. To sum it up for you, the elf is watching the children to see if they're being naughty or nice. Each night the elf will fly back to the North Pole to tell Santa how the children have been for the day. Then the elf will fly back to your house by the next day but will be in a different spot. Your job is to find him and who knows... he might come back with gifts, treats, or a message. Oh and by the way, you have to name your elf. I let Jacob name him. Also, you cannot touch him or he will lose his magic.  I will keep you all posted on how Jacob likes his elf. I think this will end up being a great tradition. I purchased this kit from Amazon but you can literally find it in any store. Michaels, Walmart, etc. 

Don't worry, he didn't touch him! 

Meet Julius. 

What's your favorite holiday tradition?

  1. My favorite Christmas tradition is letting the family open one gift the night before Christmas.
