IT HAS RETURNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(exclamation point)!!!
This lousy “Elf on a Shelf” is quickly becoming the bane of Christmas. And why do people keep buying it? My guess is that kids find these things, have a few nightmares, confront their fears, take the elf out into the backyard and burn it.
