As a teenager in this modern day, it is seldom that you can find a way to bring the magic into the Christmas season. Especially having a sibling that is significantly younger than yourself, it is rare to find one single activity that brings as much joy to them as it does to you. This activity for my family is Elf on the Shelf. Each morning, my family wakes with excitement, frantically searching for this mysterious being. This tiny helper has brought an amazing sense of being able to experience the magic of Christmas every day with my sister.
