Badly Behaved 'Elf on the Shelf' Goes Viral This Christmas

  • Elf on a Shelf has been found in some naughty positions
  • The elves have been flying off the shelves at Poundland
  • Parents share what their elves have been getting up to

Hilarious pictures of 'Elf on The Shelf' have gone viral again this Christmas.

The elf dolls are supposed to watch over children and encourage them to be well behaved. Instead, they've been pictured getting up to mischief.

The Elf on a Shelf tradition started in 2005 with a picture book about how Santa sends an elf to watch over children between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve, to make sure they are well behaved.

Elves from the official 'Elf On The Shelf' store cost £30, including the picture book. But savvy bargain hunters have turned to Poundland instead.

Poundland is selling its own elf, which costs just £2. LatestDeals.co.uk, a money saving community, said members have been quick to snap up the offer.

The elves have been found all around the house, sometimes in some very compromising positions. Photos have quickly gone viral on social media.

Elizabeth Elden at LatestDeals.co.uk said, “The Elf on a Shelf tradition is meant to encourage kids to be good before Christmas or their presents will be taken away, but this year parents have had fun with it and the elves have been found in all types of interesting positions.

“Pictures of elves have gone viral this year; the weirder the position the elf is in, the better the picture.”


Here are some photos from members of LatestDeals.co.uk.
