I have to admit that I have only learned about the Elf on the shelf tradition a few days ago, when we were thinking up this strip. It’s a funny idea! I guess everybody has played the “hide item X in a different spot every day” game at some point in his/her life.
But honestly, the German “Adventkalender” custom is not that bad either, is it? I’m surprised that American chocolate manufacturers haven’t climbed on the bandwagon yet!
