It's a unique and fairly new tradition for some families on Christmas—a prank-playing elf that is found doing something naughty and new every day leading up to the holiday: Elf on the Shelf.

Christmas elves made for sitting on shelves for decades, but in 2005, authors Carol Aebersold and Chanda Bell had a book published called “The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition.”

Now, the Elf on the Shelf is a popular toy and a recognized character.

In the video above, we share some of the most creative ways from our viewers and followers enjoy their “Elf on the Shelf.”
