    Yeah, I think it’s creepy. Also, the fact that he looks moderately like a clown or some kind of demon doll doesn’t help.

    aww my mom always had these in the living room when i was growing up. she didn’t hide them around the house so maybe that made them less creepy lol they were always on the table in the middle of the room

    Despite the fact that I had the “Norman Rockwell” style family Christmases as a child (super huge family, packed with traditions, etc), I never heard of Elf on the Shelf until recently.

    And when I did ….. shudder.

    SO glad this was one part of childhood I missed!!

    I used to work at Barnes and Nobel when they first started selling this. We were so creeped out by it we starting hiding the elf in desk drawers, lockers, etc to scare one another at work.

    Yeah, my family was all about some Christmas traditions when we were kids, but if we ever had an Elf on the Shelf, I must have disguised it as trauma and pushed it back to the deep, dark depths of my mind. I had to google it the first time I heard someone mention it and I was creeped out. FH looked and said it looked like something the Winchesters would handle (he’s on a Supernatural kick right now).

    I don’t think it’s any more creepy than Santa.

    He sees you when you’re sleeping, knows when you’re awake and knows if you’ve been bad or good.  Santa just now has a helper with this.

    @AB Bride:  Agreed. Outsourcing your peeping/breaking and entering doesn’t make it any less creepy, Santa!
