I realize this is going to sound like the Grinchiest thing ever, but I cannot wait for the holiday season to finally end so I can be rid of the infernal Elf on the Shelf that first darkened our home last yuletide.
If EOTS is supposed to "magically" show up at a child's home before Christmas to monitor a child's behavior, then how is a parent supposed to explain why they are in a box at a store for sale?

New York's 2015 holiday windows are as festive and fantastical as ever! People come from far and wide to witness the spectacular scene and the ornate window displays carefully curated to show off holiday spirit and the latest merchandise.
So we stood in line to see Santa yesterday. There were some problems.
Reports from the North Pole indicate that Santa Claus, his elves and his reindeer will begin to wear body cameras in the remaining days leading up to Christmas.
Some make pilgrimages to find the first orange leaf of fall. But I am in search of December. North Pole workshops could be gearing up at this very moment. But that is secret stuff. Since I can't get a visitor's pass there, I've got a different plan.
Snowmobiled to the aurora borealis; snorkeled the Galapagos. Been there. Blackwater rafted New Zealand's glow-worm caves; communed with orangutans in Borneo. Done that.

I don't expect very much from Santa Claus these days. I mean, he's been a disappointment over the years. My desires are few--power, money, and fame, that sort of thing--but he's yet to satisfy any of them. So I tried downgrading my requests to world peace and the end of international poverty.

It's been a difficult year so Santa, this would have been a good time to give me at least something that I wanted. But no! It's Christmas Day and I got up early to check under the tree, and nothing.
Let this be my gift. Merry Christmas! Best, Alex Schattner

J. C. Penney features Ellen DeGeneres in their holiday ads. One Million Moms says shoppers should boycott because DeGeneres is a lesbian. How much do consumers care?
The Hobbit entranced me in a way that made me forget about the technology and just plug into the movie itself. By the end, I wasn't even resenting the clunky 3D glasses.
Ever wonder what Santa's credit score looked like?
The Elf on the Shelf is one of those genius ideas that makes me want to slap myself for not thinking of it first. Well, this morning, our Elf on the Shelf quit.
