If you’re like me you probably have mixed feelings about The Elf on the Shelf. My kids absolutely love our Elf (his name is Buddy) but he’s a lot of work, finding new places to move to every day and making sure he’s somewhere safe where no one will touch him.
One Canadian couple decided that they would have some fun with their ‘Elf on the Shelf’ after seeing their friends posting pictures of their elves various poses and exploits on facebook everyday, so they decided to do a human Elf on the Shelf photo.
Joe and Megan Wynberg from Moncton, New Brunswick got Joe a costume, sat him on top of the fridge and took a picture. Joe told Buzzfeed ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if we did a human Elf On A Shelf?’” After Megan posted the fridge picture to her facebook page “It kind of took off from there.”
