I love Holiday Traditions and have carried some over from my family, my husband’s family and we have created some of our own. Traditions are important for kids. It gives them something to look forward to each year and it’s something they can carry over to their families. It also gives them a sense of security, which is so important for those young, developing minds.
We would love to hear what some of your Holiday Traditions are! Share below in the comment section.
If you are looking for a new tradition and need some ideas, we have one for you today that we just love. It involves elves, the North Pole and of course, some Holiday magic. We’re talking about Elf Magic Elves, which is an original Christmas tradition that started 50 years ago!
Elf Magic is the booming tradition where Santa’s “magic” Elves visit children’s homes during the Christmas season. The visiting Elf comes to life at night to embark on all kinds of adventures – the remnants of which surprise children when they awake the next morning. Elf Magic Elves are also very sweet and enjoy being held and loved throughout the day. While some of the Elves have mischievous streaks from time to time, Santa knows which Elf will be the best fit for each family. So whether a family wants excitement or simply companionship from their Elf, Santa will make sure the right Elf arrives at that home.
And when we say mischievous, we aren’t joking! We can’t wait to share some pictures and happenings with you in the next couple of days.
The 10” Elf Magic Elves will be extra prepared for their holiday visits this year with new SnowCases™ for their belongings; the newest Elfits™; Cozy Claus Quilts; and the book, complete with a bonus DVD, that explains the origins of the Elf Magic Tradition.
Here’s a look at what you’ll be able to find on Santa’s favorite website, www.Elf-Magic.com, or at Santa’s favorite stores—known as North Pole Supply Posts—this Christmas season:
Elves love to dress up, even if it’s just to go to sleep! Each of the new Elfits are made for the 10” Elf Magic Elf by the Elves themselves using soft poly/cotton blend fabrics.

Each quilt and pillow set is stitched by Mrs. Claus herself! Earlier this year, she made a Santa-sized version of the quilt, and decided to make matching quilts for the Elf Magic Elves with the leftover scraps! Elves will enjoy having a snuggly and warm piece of home with them when they travel this year.
Elf Magic Elves are traveling in style this year! Each SnowCase contains everything an Elf needs for a comfortable stay and safe return to the North Pole. Comes with a luggage tag, mini passport and doubles as a mobile Elf playhouse with Claus-et™ to hang Elfits, a
