I really don't overthink shite like lots of people on here do,


No kidding, what a bunch of 'if it ain't true/provable, then we don't do it' sour pusses..damn folks, let your kids have a little childhood magic, will you?

quote:

if it makes my kid happy then I'll do it


Exactly...just do NOT steer them to the Cubs

the whole thing is just for FUN..our girls write some notes to the Elf, he answers, moves around, gets into stuff and we ALL have FUN with it...

I like it.

Mine wanted to name it after himself (future OT poster). But we settled on Leonard.

Oh, look a redneck. Does your name on your belt leave an imprint on your kids butt. That is when you know you are a real man.

Seriously, the kids love it. It's all in good fun for Christmas spirit. I don't look at it as some kind of discipline strategy.

We are doing it for my 2 year old. It's not about getting her to be good for us. She gets so excited when she sees the elf in a different spot. So for us it's about the excitement of Christmas approaching.

My kid likes the idea and it only takes a small amount of effort. Of course, if you don't want to make any effort for your child to enjoy something then you could just get on a message board and make disparaging comments about what others think is a fun concept.

Ask Mrs. fin if we are exchanging Christmas cards this year. You guys are 'pretty high' on the list of folks we send to if we over order our letter thingy. I don't want to get snubbed again this year. The lack of reciprocity last year pissed Mrs LCA off...

, I dont understand the concept of making a huge mess/ordeal with an elf just so you can clean it up the next day. Its for those bitches that dont have anything better to do with their lives.


There is no huge mess required. That something that parents are doing to try and have fun. The basic premise is simple.

Each night when everyone goes to bed th elf flies back to the north pole and tells Santa if you were good or bad, then he flies back and finds a new hiding spot. Short of moving the elf once a day, you don't have to do anything.

Any other "messes" are all in good fun.

The tree and gifts have been around for hundreds of years. The book was written in 2005. I want my kids to appreciate the reason we celebrate Christmas and yes the magic, too. But, I don't need an elf to create that magic. And I think the book/elf is more around $30. That's not about magic. That's greed. So, no thank you



You've got some issues dude, and you're letting them close your mind to some fun ideas around Christmas that your kids might enjoy. I'm not using an elf to create Christmas magic. And by the way "Magic" is also created from the tree and gifts, carols, lights, etc. Are you "using" them to create magic too? GTFO.

ETA: and I assure you, my kids fully understand the religious aspects of Christmas and that they come first and foremost. That doesn't mean they can't enjoy the other aspects as well.

Did anyone say the NEDDED an elf to create magic?

It's fun, but if your Christmas is filled with only things you NEED, I hope your kids like getting wrapped canned goods, vitamins and airconditioning for christmas.

I was responding to the guy who said that not having an elf is short changing your kids on Christmas magic. Sorry, I just don't like the creepy little fricker or anything that it represents. And the more I hear people who drank the elf aid talk about how awesome it is and how Christmas is less without an elf, the more I hate it. JMO.
