Hereof, why do elves come to your house?
Elves could come to your house to see if it is safe for Santa to land there. They will check for changes in your house. And if you have a new pet then Santa himself comes around to get to know him well enough so that on Christmas Eve he doesn’t get frightened or make a lot of noise when Santa shows up.
Also Know, at what age does the elf on the shelf stop coming? After all, come Christmas morning, his job of watching the kids to make sure they’re on their best behaviour is over. 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.
Similarly one may ask, can parents touch your elf on the shelf?
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.
Why is my elf on the shelf not coming?
It’s too warm in your house. Elves live in the North Pole where the temperature is very cold. Often an elf will lose their magic over night when the temperature gets too warm or they use up too much energy making something for you.
