Elf on the Shelf Can Go to H-E-L-L
Oh, wait. Maybe I missed it in my cookie-making, picture-taking, pie-baking, light-hanging, tree-decorating, presenting-wrapping, money-spending, carol-singing, card-writing, advent-opening, party-planning, house-decorating frenzy.
Okay, so I have heard this elf helps keep the kiddos in line during the holidays with his daily "report" to Santa, and it works. But isn't that what that song "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" is for? (There's a reason my sister used to cry whenever we sang it to her.)
And what happens after Christmas anyway? Don't they just go back to their regular naughty behavior? Maybe I could get behind something if it casted a year's worth of guilt over my kid. What about God on a Shelf? Heaven for nice children? Hell for the naughty?
Well, you know where I'd like to tell that elf to go.
