In an attempt to keep the holiday spirit alive in their house, one mom has become the Christmas darling of the year on the internet. “Y’all know I can’t stand doing Elf on the Shelf but I suck it up every year and do it to see those precious smiles on my beautiful children’s faces,” Brittany Mease from Wylie, Texas wrote. This time, however, the adventures of Elfis – the family elf – took a hilariously unexpected turn, accumulating over 106K likes and 107K shares on Facebook.

Scroll down to read the amusing story in Brittany’s own words and let us know what you think about it in the comments below!

I refuse to do the elf on the shelf thing. And to the parents who complain about doing it, it's your own fault for starting it in the first place.

Agreed; I think sometimes it's well-meaning grandparents or other relatives who start it, and the parents don't have enough backbone or imagination to get out of it.
