While The Elf On The Shelf itself does leave on Christmas Eve, Elf Pets don’t have to leave.
Our Elf On The Shelf Saint Bernard stays for year round cuddles and collects Christmas cheer year round.
Does Elf on the Shelf leave Christmas Eve?
That means your family’s elf can arrive and leave on whatever day you choose. Generally, Santa’s scout bids farewell on Christmas Eve. The official Elf on the Shelf website explains that the elves must return to the North Pole on Dec. 24 because “toy making begins almost immediately” for the next year.
Can you touch the elf on Christmas Eve?
Children are not allowed to touch the elf or she will lose her magic. Secondly, the elf must never move or speak when people are home or awake, but can “move” from place to place when no one is around. Another rule says the elf leaves one final time on Christmas Eve, hitching a final ride back home on Santa’s sleigh.
What does the elf do on Christmas Eve?
According to the official Elf on the Shelf website, Santa’s helpers fly back to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. Instead, most people seem to use Christmas Eve as an opportunity to give their Buddy (or Scout, or whatever you named your guy/girl) a big send-off.
Do Elf pets stay all year?
If your kids are really missing their Scout Elf at this time of year, the Elf Pets® make perfect pals and allow little ones to have a magical North Pole visitor year round! Plus, unlike elves, these pets don’t hide throughout the year, they simply serve as cuddly companions.
