Why Elf On The Shelf Names?

It's no secret that the Elf on the Shelf has become an increasingly common custom for many American families over the holiday season. The idea is that Santa sends scout elves to the houses of children who celebrate Christmas to see whether they need anything. Every night, these enchanted elves fly to the North Pole to report the good or bad behavior of the children living in the home to Santa. The fun and games of this seasonal tradition are appreciated by many adults and children alike, and therefore it is often included in Christmas festivities.
