Elf on the Shelf: A Birthday Tradition


You may have one or you may have seen them around but no doubt about it, The Elf on the Shelf is most definitely a holiday tradition for many families.

Our family has had elves for years and my kids count the days down each holiday season until their elves return. Our elves add so much fun to our holiday tradition that I cannot imagine not having them as part of our family.


The Elf on the Shelf® is a scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus know who is naughty and who is nice. Elves typically appear in their families’ homes around Thanksgiving, but the book indicates “holiday time.” On Christmas Eve, the elves typically return to the North Pole with Santa Claus. Scout elves are available in boy or girl versions, with a light or dark skin tone.

Did you know that Santa loves birthdays, too? Now in addition to Christmas, your child can also see their favorite on their birthday with The Elf on the Shelf®: A Birthday Tradition.

In Santa’s Christmas village at the North Pole, the scout elves have their own special way of celebrating birthdays—a tradition that goes back many generations. Now, Santa has given special permission for his elves to share that tradition with the families who love them. The Elf on the Shelf®: A Birthday Tradition tells the little-known story of how Santa’s finest helpers celebrate birthdays at the North Pole—and how you can invite your scout elf to share that tradition with YOU.

Each kit includes special instructions for inviting your scout elf for a birthday visit, and a festive birthday outfit for your scout elf to slip into before the big day. Also available—the Birthday Countdown & Game and the Birthday Chair Decoration Kit.
