Saying Hello to Holiday Yoda



We don’t own an Elf on a Shelf. I think the guy looks a little skeevy (I just don’t trust his face!!) plus I’m not nearly as creative as some parents out there who regularly have their Elf pop up in the most interesting of ways.

Instead of the Elf, a visiting Holiday Yoda has appeared for the last year or two to report on happenings back to the Big Guy. Because Light side Jedis would so work with Santa, you know.

The trouble is that TLE has absolutely no interest in letting Holiday Yoda complete his mission. My little girl is more Sith than Jedi so rather than be good and allow Holiday Yoda to report his findings, she’s far more likely to turn him around and impede his mission.

We’ll have to wait and see what Holiday Yoda has to say to Santa about TLE this year.

Does your family do Elf on a Shelf or have your own spin on it?

Feel free to share!
