Naughty elves get up to mischief in residents' homes

RESIDENTS have shared photos of their elves in their homes.

The trend comes from the book Elf on the Shelf A Christmas Tradition book.

The elves can be adopted by families.

Once they are adopted they report back to Santa in the North Pole each night about which children have made the naughty and nice lists.

But the elves are known to hide from their adopted families.

Post a photo of where your Elf on the Shelf is hiding in your home on our Facebook page.
