Santa Claus. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Frosty the Snowman. All these beloved characters have become synonymous with joy during the holiday season. But no character creates quite the level of divisiveness as Elf on the Shelf. We know! We can hear the groans as parents across Long Island remember that this is also the season where Elf on the Shelf arrives and must be moved.
Every Single. Night.
There are entire Pinterest accounts dedicated to helping you with new daily creative position ideas for your elf so the kids can be delighted every day - and keep up their belief in the magic of the season.
No pressure there, right?
The Village of Patchogue has come up with a unique way of incorporating the Elf on the Shelf into a shopping experience of sorts. According to the Chamber of Commerce, from November 28 through December 23, a male and female Elf on the Shelf will be placed in a different location throughout Patchogue with a special Holiday Deal of the Day. You can follow the elves on the Chamber’s Instagram and Facebook pages for daily updates.
