Obviously you don't have children. Some parents like to make special memories for their children. You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I for one like seeing them and that's my opinion.

I would rather see Elf on a Shelf pics than all the boobs, butts and those ridiculous duck lip pics on Facebook!

im js but i have wonderful memories as a child during christmas and none of them included an elf...instead they include me and my family doing things together like making popcorn rope for the tree, or carroling, writing letters to santa, you know normal things like that...not seeing a creepy little elf showing up in diff places making a mess all over the house for my parents to clean up and they are just ok with it...hmmm doesnt make much sense sorry

sorry but yes i have kids and no i still dont get the whole elf on a shelf thing. it had to be someone that was NOT a parent to come up with the idea of making up lies to your kids and teaching them its ok to turn the house upside down as long as its in the name of christmas

Never said Elf on a Shelf was the ONLY Christmas memory to make. These people may be doing those same things you mentioned which by the way sound nice. They just choose for whatever reason to post the elf pics.

What argument? Makes no sense? You don't like elf on a shelf, I do. It's an opinion not an argument.

as it becomes more popular and well-known, I feel kinda sorry for the kids whose parents can't afford the 30 bucks for one. they must wonder why santa's elf doesn't visit them..

Don't worry. Next year Obama will make sure everyone has an elf on the shelf.

lol dont worry ive already explained it to mine, and its not because i cant afford it u dolt, they are to old for lies anyway so it doesnt much matter. But to each their own i guess, go ahead and make up lies to your kid and explain away that when they are teenagers and making up lies to you for what they do.___OH but its ok when its about christmas (jesus's birthday)but evey other time of year its bad, go ahead and explain that one when they are older, i dare you!

I'm sorry but I'm still not convinced that lying even more to the kids is such a great idea, i mean, santa is enough of a lie without adding a juvinile delinquint elf to the picture...js...i still agree with pet peeve sorry ;)

I have to say agreed...it still makes no sense to me and apart from the namecalling NOT ONE PERSON can give a good reason except "im following a fad", like a little sheep to the slaughter...sorry but thats not an option for me either....js
