How the Elf on the Shelf tradition began
The Elf on the Shelf meme has taken over the holiday season of 2020 by a storm of celebs chanting their names and spreading puns in new and creative ways to challenge the meme.
Comedian Amy Schumer created one of the most popular publications that featured Heidi Klum, Orlando Bloom, Rumer Willis and herself. The epic was published, “Klum Ali Blum Ali Rum Ali Shum Ali Zoom.”
The Elf on the Shelf tradition began in 2005 when Carol Ebersold and her daughter Chanda Bell published the book “The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition” along with a special box with a little flashlight inside. In an interview with “The news is with Shepherd SmithBell said imitation is like a “simple game of hide and seek.”
“The dwarf will be watching us during the day, and it will reach Santa at night, and in the morning before the children wake up, the dwarf will fly back from the North Pole and land in a different place in the house,” Bill said. “They move around the house, communicate with families, hopefully they bring a lot of joy and fun.”
Bill clarified some of the popular misconceptions about Elf Scouts, the first, is that elves are not harmful. Second, Scout Elves cannot speak to humans. In fact, they only speak in the Arctic. Third, Bill said that families don’t buy Scout Elves, they adopt them. More than 14.5 million Scouts have been adopted worldwide since 2005. Finally, Scout elves are magic creatures from the Arctic, like Santa, so they do not contract human diseases and do not need to be quarantined during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Bill said, “In fact, elves have only one weakness, which is that they cannot be touched by humans, it is like kryptonite.” “They will lose Christman’s charm, it’s too bad for them.”
Bill is the co-CEO of Lumistella with her sister, Christa Bates. Their company owns the “Elf on the Shelf” brand and is continuing to expand. Netflix recently acquired the AV rights from Lumistella to develop original stories from the entire company’s portfolio. Their company has also formed new partnerships with brands like Honey Baked Ham, Hoover Vacuum, Kellogg’s, and Allstate. Bell said she hopes her story will inspire others to turn their thoughts into facts.
“I tell people that you have to take this leap of faith, it is one step ahead of the other, and it is difficult to own your own business, run your own business, and self-publish. These things require a lot of dedication, a lot of patience and faith, a lot of risk, but in the end, Hard work really pays off, and it’s worth it, “said Bill.
