My Granddaughter Jemma was really happy because someone ( nope, wasn’t me ) sent Jemma her very own Elf on a Shelf.
She named him Henry.
Henry settled in and did what Elves do. He started to create mischief the minute everyone went to sleep.
You might have an Elf on the Shelf, you might have giant inflatable Grinch on your lawn and Santa and his Reindeer lit up with festive lights on your roof.
I have a Krampus on my tree and as I pondered on naughty old Henry I thought I’d make a Christmas wish- and wouldn’t you know it?
It came true!
The take away from this little Christmas adventure is this.
If your Lola (Lola is the Filipino word for grandmother) has shelves full of gargoyles in her living room and Krampus has a place of honor in her home during the holidays
and you are bedeviled by an Elf on The Shelf, its a safe bet
that little devilish little Elf is going to spend a lot of the Christmas season looking over his shoulder.
Merry Christmas and while I’m at it- Happy Halloween.
