25 Days Of Creepy Christmas, Day 16: The Elf On The Shelf Is Just Too Creepy

Welcome to our first annual ViralNova Presents: 25 Days Of Creepy Christmas special section! Every day, from December 1st to December 25th, we”re posting a new Christmas themed article guaranteed to get you in the creepy holiday spirit.

If there”s one Christmas tradition that is the definition of creepy, it”s The Elf On The Shelf. For those not familiar with tradition, The Elf On The Shelf is a book written in 2005. The plot is about an elf who watches children everyday during the month of December.

Then, each night the elf flies back to the North Pole and reports to Santa all of the good and bad things that the children did that day. Each book comes with its own little elf that parents hide everyday during December for their kids.

The idea of one of Santa”s elves watching everything that you and kids do leading up to Christmas just sounds like the creepiest thing ever, especially because some of the elves like to get up to mischief when no one is looking.
