Because I am – as J puts it – “obsessed with Christmas” – we have many holiday traditions in our family. However we’ve never done the “Elf on the Shelf” thing before.
But my sister’s kids have always had an Elf on the Shelf during the Christmas season, and this year, 4 year old C started asking why we don’t have our own magical elf hanging around.
Thus, please allow me to introduce you to D’Brickashaw, our new Elf on the Shelf.
Because C seemed so into the idea, I acquired an elf this weekend. She wanted to name him “Elfy,” but her 13 year old big brother E immediately christened him “D’Brickashaw” instead. And it stuck.
I assumed this was a very E-like made up name (and a great one at that) but it turns out that our elf actually has a proud name lineage.
In any event, he’s already flown to the North Pole and back this weekend to report on G’s latest misdeeds. And when he goes back tonight, he’ll have plenty of new material for Santa after the day we’ve had around here.
Do any of y’all have an Elf on the Shelf at Christmastime? Does he have a name? Is his name as cool as D’Brickashaw the Elf’s name?
