Better Than an Advent Calendar: Elf on the Shelf

Better Than an Advent Calendar: Elf on the Shelf

We were visited by a pixie elf the day after Thanksgiving this year. It’s the third year in a row he’s showed up. His name is Elfie.

My oldest son, G, named the elf. He was sent to us by Santa Claus himself. He comes every year the day after Thanksgiving. He’s even made appearances in New York City and Massachusetts when we were traveling for the holidays.

If you haven’t figured it out. I’m talking about Elf on the Shelf.

The rules are simple.

This will not be the church craft fair that you went to last year...trying to decide between the wooden geese, doilies and the rayon yarn vests in red and green.

This will be the juried creatives fair of Rockland, where artists, artisans, craftspeople, and foodies can sell their wares to folks who are looking for the perfect gift for friends, family and coworkers.  Maybe for themselves, too! 

We will be located in the gym of the Lincoln Street Center, 24 Lincoln Street, with over 50 booths!
